In line with our continued Made for Life philosophy, Canon Medical extends our support to other areas beyond medical imaging, with the aim to build stronger and more successful communities. Our support to Assistance Dogs Australia (ADA) is one of these initiatives.

Up to date, Canon Medical has sponsored 4 assistance dogs. Three of them have successfully graduated and are now living with the families that need help. Faith, the fourth dog we sponsor, is now busy with her training to become a qualified assistance dog.

Assistance Dogs Australia

Assistance Dogs Australia provides freedom and independence to children and adults with disabilities. They train Labradors and Golden Retrievers to offer physical and emotional support to assist people with:

  • Physical disabilities
  • Autism
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Dementia
  • Children with special needs and elderly in care homes

Assistance Dogs increase independence, reduce reliance on human caregivers and act as a great ice-breaker helping overcome social isolation.
