CDSS benefits from the input and feedback of our Affiliate Council and values members as partners working with, and on behalf of, citizens with Down syndrome and their families.
The Canadian Down syndrome society partners with local support groups to provide comprehensive, in-community support for people with Down syndrome, their families and friends.
