We know our world looks different right now and things continue to change every day, but one thing that remains the same is our commitment to the MS community and to a world free of MS.
Ensuring the health and safety of our entire community — people affected by MS, volunteers, fundraisers, donors, staff — remains our top priority. We have been monitoring restart plans in our communities across the country and have been working on our own plans. Given the nature and the risk of COVID-19 in relation to our MS community, we have made the decision to continue delivering on our mission within a remote working environment until early 2022. We feel this decision will support our efforts to put the health and well-being of those we serve at the forefront of our work.
This also means we will continue to deliver programs and events virtually. During this time, our work to support Canadians affected by MS will not stop. We are encouraging virtual ways to connect members of the MS community — especially through this time period. While we cannot gather in person, we encourage you to take advantage of our digital platforms to continue to connect with each other. You can also visit mssociety.ca to learn more about our upcoming nationwide webinars, NeuroSask – a virtual program that offers both physiotherapy-guided movement and an opportunity for social connection, as well as other wellness resources that may be beneficial during COVID-19. We are committed to updating you on any changes to in-person activities as they arise.
We're also only a phone call away. Our MS Society staff from across Canada are working remotely to deliver on the promise of our mission. For general office questions or local fundraising or programs and services inquiries, please contact 1-800-268-7582.
Additionally, our MS Navigators will continue to provide support to people affected by MS. For information and supports on navigating your MS journey, please contact an MS Navigator by calling 1-844-859-6789, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by live chat on mssociety.ca.
The MS Society will be closed from December 17, 2022, to January 2, 2023. We will reopen January 3, 2023. The Knowledge Network service will not be open during this time. During this time, you can find reliable information and support about MS on our website at mssociety.ca, or email email@example.com and an MS Navigator will respond to you after we re-open.
Thank you for your continued support!
