Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada

Financial Assistance

The MS Society offers two types of funding; equipment purchase and permanent loan as well as special assistance programs. Please note that funding programs vary from province-to-province.

The MS Society of Canada does not offer financial assistance for medications or disease modifying therapies, however, for information on funding programs for medication / therapies, please visit Treatments.

Equipment purchase or permanent loan

The most common service provided by most divisions and chapters is assistance with equipment to help people with MS maximize their quality of life. Divisions and chapters manage this service in various ways:

  • Information and advocacy to assist people in understanding the resources available to them through their own benefits programs and the provincial health system, etc.
  • Full or partial purchase of equipment or permanent loan
