Calgary’s Down Syndrome Association

If you are a new or expecting parent, are new to the Calgary area, or are looking to connect with other parents, Ups and Downs is here for you. Registered as a charity in 1987, Ups & Downs has supported individuals who have Down syndrome, their parents, families, and friends in the Calgary area for over 20 years. An annual Christmas Party, Teen and Young Adult Conference, and regular events for children, youth, and adults are just some of the more than 60 events a year that Ups & Downs runs, offering many opportunities to connect, discuss, and learn from each other and from professionals. Street Meet – our annual walkathon fundraiser held in June – celebrates individuals who have Down syndrome, their families, and friends.
