To join the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society, please use our secure online form to join now.
Hereditary hemochromatosis is caused by defects in a gene called HFE. DNA testing can confirm the presence of the three mutations which are known to cause hemochromatosis: C282Y, H63D and S65C. DNA testing can be done to find out if your family may be at risk.
A confidential HFE genetic testing using buccal (mouth) swab collection is available through Genetrack Biolabs at www.hemochromatosisdna.com.

Your support for the Society is an opportunity for you to help fund six potentially lifesaving programs run by CHS. You and your family will also be on the front line of the information-disseminating work of CHS. The most challenging aspect of hemochromatosis is making sure the general public and medical professionals are aware of its common occurrence and ease of treatment. As a member, you will also have a voice in directing the Society's activities while lending the weight of your presence on our membership list to help us convince others of the importance of our mission to eliminate the needless suffering and premature death this disorder can cause.
