The Canadian Sarcopenia Foundation (CSF) is Canada's first not-for-profit charity dedicated to preventing and reversing the course of metabolic disease and sarcopenia -- the progressive loss of muscle mass and physical function which occurs with aging, affecting adults beginning at the age of 30.
Our foundation partners with qualified fitness facilities to offer subsidized services to diagnose and rehabilitate degenerative disorders through exercise services. We offer assistance to the elderly and those who are experiencing muscular and functional losses. The CSF aims to raise awareness about Sarcopenia through education, research and treatment.
The CSF will work to prevent, diagnose and reverse the onset of metabolic disease - characterized by the presence of obesity, high blood pressure, increased fasting glucose, etc. Living with metabolic disease is a significant risk factor for the onset of diabetes and a host of other preventable chronic degenerative disorders.
Within Canada’s health care landscape, the CSF will function as a direct intermediary between family physicians and qualified clinical facilities to bring the best preventative care to patients across the country.
The CSF believes in prescribing exercise and dietary interventions to reverse the effects of sarcopenia to improve living conditions for a stronger Canada. The Canadian Sarcopenia Foundation aims to:
The CSF will educate and raise awareness of sarcopenia to help prevent future cases, especially among Canadians under the age of 30.
Prevent and reverse early onset sarcopenia as well as prevent and improve the symptoms of chronic metabolic disease. Patients will be referred to partner facilities equipped to reverse degenerative disorders.
Fund the treatment of at-risk individuals by working with family doctors to connect patients with professionals and facilities, which apply the principles of clinical high-intensity exercise. The organization aims to fund the expansion of these facilities and place a functional medicine physician in every partner site.

The CSF will fund research in the area of sarcopenia prevention (including without limitation the association between [i] sarcopenia and [ii] dietary protein consumption and high intensity exercise). As sarcopenia is still highly unrecognized disease, CSF will fund research examining the link between lean body mass and chronic metabolic disease to bring attention and heighten scientific knowledge of this disease.
