The mission of the Pacific Alzheimer Research Foundation is to eradicate Alzheimer disease and related dementias. We plan to establish a scientific task force to accomplish this mission. We will do this through the generous grant of $15 million from the Government of British Columbia and through additional fund raising activities. We will support scientists whose aim is to achieve this objective. We will assist universities, hospitals and other qualified Canadian institutions to recruit investigators who will devote their efforts to eradicating dementia.
To quote from the British Columbia Speech from the Throne, February 14, 2006:

“To increase efforts to help find a cure for these debilitating and destructive diseases, your government will strive to establish a national research collaborative, working together with the Pacific Alzheimer Research Foundation.
If we can impede and eliminate these dementias we will improve our citizens’ quality of life and also reduce pressure on health budgets in the years ahead.”

The Foundation will be operated exclusively for charitable purposes without financial gain to its members. No part of any income of the Society shall be payable or otherwise available for the personal benefit of the members. All funds received will be made available as grants to support highly focused research aimed at eradicating Alzheimer disease and related dementias. An International Scientific Advisory Committee has been established to assist in determining which projects meet the highest scientific standards within the mission of the Society.
