Summary
This Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, let’s end stigma and make Canada a safer place for people living with dementia.

Stigma is one of the biggest barriers for people with dementia to live fully with dignity and respect. That's why we're excited to kick off the second year of our awareness campaign—Yes. I live with dementia. Let me help you understand—to spark conversations and encourage Canadians to see dementia differently.

Once again this year, we're letting the experts do the talking: people with lived experience. Our vibrant ambassadors are openly and honestly sharing their stories to show Canadians a pathway to understanding. After all, who better to educate the public than those who face stigma every day?

By highlighting the humanity that is part of every single person living with dementia, our campaign seeks to convert judgement into compassion and assumptions into understanding.
