Registered as a charity since 1988, the Canadian AIDS Society (CAS) is a national coalition of over 125 community-based AIDS organizations across Canada. We are dedicated to strengthening the response to HIV/AIDS across all sectors of society, and to enriching the lives of people and communities living with HIV/AIDS.
