The Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths (CFSID) is a voluntary charitable organization dedicated to responding to the needs of Canadian families affected by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Sudden infant death syndrome is the sudden death of any infant or young child that is unexpected by history and for which no adequate cause for death can be found. Established in 1973, the foundation is committed to promoting and supporting research into the causes of sudden infant death syndrome, facilitating programs of public education, and offering information and emotional support to bereaved families. Informational pamphlets and articles are distributed on request to parents, health professionals, emergency services personnel, and the general public. The foundation also distributes three videos, "Sam's Story: A Story for Families Surviving Sudden Infant Death Syndrome," "When the Bough Breaks," and "SIDS--Emergency Response."
