About Canadian Men’s Health Foundation
Our mission is to inspire men to live healthier lives.
Canadian Men’s Health Foundation (CMHF), is a national, not-for-profit organisation established in 2014 by its visionary, Dr. Larry Goldenberg and founding president Wayne Hartrick. Our mission is to inspire men to live healthier lives.
Canadians believe they’re a pretty healthy nation but weirdly, Canadian guys aren’t that healthy and it’s not because of genetics; it’s a result of lifestyle.
The statistics around men’s health in Canada are alarming; men are 40% more likely to die from cancer, 70% more likely to die from heart disease and live an average of nine years of their lives in extremely poor health. 70% of men’s health problems can be prevented by adopting healthy lifestyles.
With good information and easy tips, we know every guy can make small changes to make him feel healthier, and will benefit his family and community. CMHF envisions a nation where Canadian society values the final piece of the family health puzzle – men actively caring for their health. Through a new social awareness campaign with Canadian men, we will motivate them and their families using health information and lifestyle programs in such a way that they can hear, absorb, and act.
CMHF’s national campaign builds awareness of men’s health issues, changes attitudes, and then changes behaviours to improve men’s overall health. The campaign, ‘Don’t Change Much’, is built around the concept that small steps become habit, and habit becomes a healthier lifestyle. Read more about Don’t Change Much.
Funding for CMHF has been provided by private donors, corporate partners, the Government of British Columbia and the Government of Canada. CMHF was publicly launched on June 3rd of 2014.
