Information

People affected by MS look to the MS Society of Canada to provide information about MS diagnosis, symptoms, treatments, research, programs and related topics such as employment, insurance and family issues. By obtaining the most up-to-date information about the disease, people affected by MS can become more knowledgeable about MS, more aware of resources, and better able to make informed decisions and take control of an unpredictable and complicated disease.

MS Society staff utilizes community and academic resources to inform clients about MS issues.

The MS Society of Canada, Atlantic Division, provides accurate and up-to-date information about MS. Information can be accessed by phoning 1-800-268-7582 or by emailing info.atlantic@mssociety.ca

You can also contact our Knowledge Network to ask a question and be provided with consistent, quality MS information and support.

Resources

Referral

In addition to providing information on MS and related issues, the Atlantic Division connects people with MS to vital community support resources. Some community agencies for which we can provide contact information include:

  • Provincial prescription drug programs
  • Homecare agencies
  • Equipment programs

Contacting these agencies, or any other referrals, is a personal decision. The responsibility is left to the client. There is no charge to obtain information or referral services. However, information is distributed with the understanding that people use it for their own use and not for reproduction or profit.
