About Lung Association of Saskatchewan:

The Lung Association of Saskatchewan (TLAS) aims to improve respiratory health and the overall quality of life for people with lung disease through programs, education, research, training, and treatment. Founded in 1911 as the Saskatchewan Anti-Tuberculosis League, TLAS has expanded its mission to target all lung diseases and related issues, including asthma, tobacco use, lung cancer, air quality and public awareness, sleep apnea, and COPD.

In recent years, TLAS has funded several research professorships within Saskatchewan, including research on asthma, sleep apnea and COPD. In addition, TLAS is active in promoting awareness and advocating for lung health in the province. Programs include developing clinical guidelines for asthma diagnosis and treatment, developing patient information material for lung cancer, providing home testing kits for radon, administering support groups for sleep apnea, and providing smoking cessation services.

TLAS presented to Warman and Martensville City Councils to advocate for outdoor public smoke-free spaces in 2014. The cities implemented bylaws that took effect January 2015.
