The Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada (TSFC) is a national, voluntary health organization dedicated to providing support and information to Canadian families affected by Tourette syndrome. Tourette syndrome (TS) is a hereditary neurologic movement disorder characterized by repetitive motor and vocal tics. Symptoms may include involuntary movements of the extremities, shoulders, and face accompanied by uncontrollable sounds and/or inappropriate words. Symptoms tend to be variable and follow a chronic waxing and waning course. TSFC's mission is to help families affected by Tourette syndrome by gathering and distributing information about the disorder; promoting local self-help and professional services; and stimulating and funding research into the cause, treatment, and potential cure of TS. TSFC organizes workshops and symposiums for healthcare professionals; develops and maintains lists of physicians who diagnose and treat TS; and supports the Brain Bank Program and collaborates with other agencies dealing with neurological disorders. The foundation publishes a tri-annual newsletter entitled "The Green Leaflet" and provides brochures, pamphlets, reports, and audiovisual aids.
