Our Patron

As Patron of the Canadian Lung Association, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston assists in raising the profile of the Association and highlighting its goals as they relate to improving the respiratory health of Canadians.

The connection between The Lung Association and the Governor General goes back to 1900 when the eighth Governor General of Canada, the Earl of Minto, helped found the Canadian Tuberculosis Association (as The Lung Association was originally known). This vital link that started over 100 years ago has continued through the mandate of successive Governors General up to the tenure of Mr. Johnston.

The Canadian Lung Association is grateful and honoured for the support given by the Governor General to our goal of helping Canadians breathe easier.
