Organization Description and Historical Background

The Alzheimer Society of Timmins-Porcupine District was founded by a group of family caregivers in 1986 under the leadership of Monica Bevil. It is a non profit corporation and registered charity governed by a Board of Directors who are elected by membership at the Annual General Meeting held in June each year.

The Society is operated and managed by a staff team of full- and part-time employees who are responsible for the design and implementation of family support and education services.

The Society receives funding from the Ministry of Health, community donations and memorials. Research support dollars are raised through fundraising organized by the Society.

The Alzheimer Society of Timmins-Porcupine District Inc., through its affiliation with the Alzheimer Society of Ontario and the Alzheimer Society of Canada, maintains an active role in supporting the growth and development of the Alzheimer movement.

Our dedicated Board, Staff and Volunteers work tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
