Changes are coming to the TSC Canada website!
While we work on creating a new TSC Canada webpage with Canadian focused content, we are making use of our Global Alliance Partnership with the TSC Alliance to ensure our medical content is current. You’ll see throughout the TSC Canada website, links to the relevant TSC Alliance webpages.
We look forward to presenting our new webpage in 2024!
We are currently looking for volunteers to translate our new webpage content from English to French. If you are interested in volunteering, please email TS Canada ST@gmail.com
