  • Relevant Offices:


The carnation is a strong symbol in MS Communities. In 1975, this flower became Canada's most recognized symbol of hope in the quest to end multiple sclerosis when the first MS Carnation Campaign kicked off in Quebec.

The MS Carnation Campaign is now the MS Society of Canada’s longest running fundraiser. Over $45 million has been raised through the campaign since its inception, with funds directed toward services and research.

Many Canadians living with multiple sclerosis are mothers and young women. Women are diagnosed with MS three times as often as men and make up 75% of people living with the disease in Canada. These statistics are why the MS Carnations of Hope Campaign takes place over Mother's Day weekend.

On Mother's Day weekend, volunteers in communities across Atlantic Canada will be showing their dedication to finding a cure by selling carnations. Funds raised from the carnations will go towards research and programs and services to help those living with and affected by MS.

Help raise awareness about multiple sclerosis by purchasing a carnation this Mother's Day weekend, or join our volunteer team and help us run a local campaign. Together we will end MS!
