The Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) is a not-for-profit pan-Canadian network founded in 2012 and funded by the federal government through the Networks of Centres of Excellence. We work to improve the health of older adults, especially those living with frailty. Frailty is a condition of reduced function and health – those living with frailty are more susceptible to large declines in health from minor illnesses such as the flu or falls. Through this program, we hope to empower you to AVOID frailty.

The AVOID Frailty Program is part of the Canadian Frailty Network, a not-for-profit organization who receives funding from the federal government through the Networks of Centres of Excellence. We are held to rigorous research and ethics standards. Your privacy and our integrity are important to us.
