The Canadian Association of Williams Syndrome (CAWS) was founded by a group of parents in 1984. We are a national federation of the provinces of Canada that provide support to Williams syndrome individuals and their families. Our registered non-profit society consists of 350 families and continues to grow as awareness is increased and information is shared. CAWS is often support for other Williams Syndrome Associations and their families around the world and vice versa.
Walk for the CAWS is a yearly event and is one of our largest fundraising initiatives.
