The Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada (or TSFC) is a Canadian voluntary organization based in Toronto, Ontario. It was formed in 1976,[1] and is dedicated to improving the quality of life for those with or affected by Tourette syndrome through programs of education, advocacy, self-help and the promotion of research.[2] It has chapters in six Canadian provinces.[3]

The foundation is notable for its publications,[4] including an educator's handbook and the 2004 film Circle of Support, which had its premiere at the National Film Board of Canada.[5]
