About Ontario Lung Association:

Founded in 1945, the Ontario Lung Association (OLA) aims to improve lung health in Ontario. Through its 10 regional offices, it funds medical research, provides information and education programs, and encourages healthy living through specific programs and advocacy. OLA's programs are concentrated on 4 major areas: asthma care and prevention, air quality, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and smoking prevention.

OLA's wide range of programs include tobacco-cessation programs, information services to improve air quality in homes, and BreathWorks, a helpline and information service for people with COPD. Among the highlights of its advocacy work are bringing about smoke-free Ontario legislation, stricter controls for youth-targeted tobacco products, smoke-free cars for children, and phasing out Ontario's coal-fired electricity plants.

In November 2013 the OLA celebrated the first-ever lung month, which aims to deliver lung-health messages to Ontarians, including the 2.4 million people living with chronic lung diseases. Lung Month 2014 focused on raising funds for respiratory research, which is the focus of the charity’s recent Breathing as One campaign.

Financial Review:

In F2014 administrative costs were 3% of total revenues, while fundraising costs were 21% of donations. OLA has funding reserves of $6.5m, $279k of which are donor-endowed. OLA has enough non-donor-endowed funding reserves to cover 74% of annual program costs and grants. In F2014 OLA recorded expenses of $514k to support activities administered by the Canadian Lung Association, including research and national programs. Ci included this in grants.
