Persons of short stature come from all walks of
life, all cultural, ethnic and social-economic
background. Their short stature may be caused
by a growth disorder or by one of over 200
different types of skeletal dysplasia, commonly
known as dwarfism.
Membership is offered to persons of short stature,
their families and to medical professionals and
community organizations concerned with persons of short stature. Find out more about the benefits of involvement or request a membership application by e-mail.
LPBC provides a variety of opportunities for involvement throughout BC. From adapted sports programs for junior and teen members to discussion groups for parents and siblings of short statured members, our goal is to provide a variety of activities so that all members can participate in the organization.
Whether members gather in educational workshops or on a less formal social basis, meeting other individuals of short stature and their families opens up a whole new
world of information, support and most importantly friendship and understanding.
