Listening to People Affected by MS

The MS Society uses input and insight from our stakeholders to advance our mission to be a leader in finding a cure for multiple sclerosis and enabling people affected by MS to enhance their quality of life. Results of this initiative help to inform the strategic plans of the MS Society of Canada and our programs, services, research and advocacy work. Thank you for sharing your voice.

What is the Listening to People Affected by MS Initiative 1.0 and 2.0?

This initiative was launched in 2014 in order to hear from Canadians affected by MS about their quality of life priorities, needs, and barriers so that the MS Society of Canada can better inform decisions that relate to our programs, services and advocacy. We sought input in a number of ways including two on-line surveys, a poll, focus groups, key informant interviews and an environmental scan, all of which will helped us further explore aspects of quality of life and MS.

In 2014, we heard from over 6,000 Canadians about their quality of life needs, priorities and barriers. Results from the initiative can be found at

In 2018, we launched the second edition of this survey where we heard form thousands of Canadians affected by MS. The survey is now closed and results will be shared in the coming months and will help inform the next strategic plan.
