Jeff Robertson
York Region Chapter Coordinator


Jeff_Photo.jpgI have been involved with the PKD Foundation of Canada for many years, as a volunteer for the  Chapter and Walk Coordinator in Toronto, and currently hold the role of Executive Director for the Foundation. My life has been deeply impacted by polycystic kidney disease (PKD) – both my mother and grandmother were diagnosed with the disease when I was young. As a result I have always been passionate about the importance of self-advocacy, volunteerism and community involvement. Having seen the increase in national exposure the PKD Foundation of Canada has received over the last ten years, I am confident that the Foundation will continue to achieve even greater success.

I look forward to establishing this York Region Chapter of the PKD Foundation of Canada and supporting those in the local community who are affected by polycystic kidney disease.


PKD Foundation of Canada Chapters are led by volunteers who want to make a difference in the fight to end PKD! Contact us today to find out how you can get involved with the York Region Chapter.
