Young Adult Committee

The mission of the MS Society of Canada is to connect and empower the MS community to create positive change. The Young Adult Committee helps the MS Society deliver on its mission by being a voice for a key demographic of younger individuals affected by MS who have specific needs, skills, and capacity to enact change.

The creation of this committee draws on the momentum of the first national MS Can Be Young Adult Summit in 2019 which brought together over 80 young adults affected by MS to network, build skills, motivate each other, and consider the type of personal impact they want to have to better the lives of people affected by MS.

The Young Adult Committee supports the MS Society of Canada by:

  • Bringing the voice of a younger generation (39 and under) to the organization through direct linkages to the board and the strategic direction
  • Providing input on advocacy priorities and positions, current and future programs and program delivery, and research priorities
  • Identifying and directly supporting/leading MS Can Be activities and projects (example: grant review and distribution and creating a template for future summits)
  • Advising on strategies for engagement and promoting interaction with young adults affected by MS
  • Direct participation in advocacy (government relations) and public awareness initiatives
