Support Groups - Hamilton- Halton

  • Peer Support
  • Social Gatherings & Recreation

We currently have 10 Support Groups. Support groups provide members with an opportunity to discuss common issues related to MS, including strategies for how to cope better with the disease. The groups offer emotional support, information and practical help through the experience of others.

Individuals Diagnosed with MS: there are 9 groups that meet monthly (Stoney Creek Downtown, Stoney Creek Mountain, Waterdown and Downtown Hamilton, Burlington, Milton, and Oakville)

Family or Friends who have a loved one with MS: there is a Carepartner Group that meets monthly (Hamilton)

Teachers diagnosed with MS: there is a Teacher Support Group that meets periodically for informal dinner meetings at local accessible restaurants (Hamilton)

Support groups are facilitated by an MS Society representative (volunteer or staff). All meetings run from September to June. Meetings are cancelled when Accessible Transportation is cancelled. If a meeting day falls on a holiday it will be rescheduled.

For more information please contact the Hamilton-Halton Chapter (905) 527-7874.
