About Canadian Osteogenesis Imperfecta Society

The Canadian Osteogenesis Imperfecta Society (COIS) is an international, non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to assisting individuals affected by osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), a genetic disorder characterized by abnormally fragile, brittle bones. Established in 1983, the society aims to provide emotional support on a personal level for parents and people with osteogenesis imperfecta; encourage and foster Canadian medical research into the underlying causes of OI; acquaint medical personnel, hospitals, educational institutions, and social agencies with all facets of osteogenesis imperfecta; maintain an up-to-date library of literature both medical and general pertaining to OI; and promote awareness of brittle bones by the public.
