Government Relations and Advocacy
MS Society volunteers and staff with Prime Minister Stephen Harper and MP Peter Braid raising awareness for MS during the 1 Day in May Campaign
Until we end MS, people affected by the disease face many challenges. The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada works to ensure people with MS and their families have the opportunity to participate fully in all aspects of life.
Across the country, the MS Society endeavours to change government policies, private industry practices and public attitudes in ways that will benefit people affected by MS.
Join our current campaign ACTIONonMS.ca to support secure jobs and income for people affected by MS.
Visit mslistening.ca for our Call to Action on MS report calling on all governments to take action to:
- Support secure jobs and income for people affected by MS
- Care for the caregiver
- Coordinate quality lifelong care and support for people with MS
- Accelerate progressive MS research
Individual advocacy means working to assist yourself or another person to help obtain needed services and to maximize quality of life. For more information see Advocating for Yourself.
