Ask your Member of Parliament to support these critical steps:

  • Make Work…Work by including more flexible employment to allow people with MS and episodic disabilities to remain in the workforce
  • Make Ends Meet by improving income and disability supports for people with MS who are unable to work or can only work on an intermittent basis
  • Make Access a Reality by implementing accessibility legislation, increasing access to treatments, and investing in comprehensive home care.
