Our Story – We had looked forward to menopause as a time of freedom and an exciting second act in life. Instead, we were blindsided by a host of symptoms we did not appreciate were part of the menopause transition. We realized that women – like us – were struggling to find answers and to get help. Many were suffering in silence. Our journeys to get support through the health care system and beyond convinced us that menopause was a gender equity issue that required urgent attention. We created the Menopause Foundation of Canada to lead a national conversation about menopause and to advocate for concrete action to improve mature women’s health.
