Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada

Volunteer Legal Advocacy Program

The Volunteer Legal Advocacy Program (VLAP) aims to improve quality of life for people living with MS by increasing access to legal and advocacy supports. While services vary by region, the MS Society is growing this program to offer a range of services that will benefit people living with MS who often face advocacy and/or legal challenges in the areas of disability rights, housing, employment, income security, etc. Additionally, applications for Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPP-D) benefits (as well as other income security applications) are very complex and are more likely to be successful when you are well supported with resources and/or experts.
