Calgary COPD & Asthma Program

How we can help

How we can help...

The Calgary COPD and Asthma Program is an Alberta Health Services program.  We are a team of certified respiratory educators and respirologists.  We strive to be a leading centre in Canada working with patients and other health care professionals in treating asthma, COPD, tobacco reduction, and chronic cough. 

  • Have you recently been diagnosed with asthma, COPD, or chronic cough or have already been living with it for some time? 
  • Are you thinking about quitting smoking and just don't know where to start? 

Our Certified Respiratory Educators provide education for patients with asthma, COPD, chronic cough, and smokers at risk. 

Referral Sources: The Calgary COPD & Asthma Program no longer does spirometry testing. We are still accepting referrals to provide respiratory education for patients who have asthma, COPD, or require smoking cessation information.  These appointments will be conducted virtually or by phone.  Please continue to fax us a referral along with a copy of the most current pulmonary function test, if available.  Thank you for your continued support.


How we began...

The Calgary COPD & Asthma Program (CCAP) was an initiative which began in 1991, led by by Drs. Robert Cowie, Gordon Ford and Stephen Field.  This dedicated team helped build CCAP into a nationally recognized, multi-site, multi-disciplinary program.

More About Our History
