Who We Are

There are ten chapters in BC & Yukon Division. Each chapter provides services and programs in and around its community. The Society is connected to more than 60 self-help groups offering support in BC and Yukon.
Over a 12
month period MS Society Client Services
in the division will make over 31,000 connections with people living with MS, their families and their caregivers. This support includes providing:
- peer and
family support groups
to enhance mobility
social and recreational programs

Annual fundraising events
for 86% of funds that enable the MS Society to provide free services and programs for those living with MS and to support leading research to find a cure. Each spring, over 6,000 people take part in one of the 25 Scotiabank MS Walks
organized in communities across BC and Yukon. In the summer, people pedal to end MS at six unique MS Bike Tours
or take the MS 100 Hole Golf
