Join the campaign to improve #LifeWithMS

Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world. Every day an average of 11 Canadians are diagnosed with MS. Women are three times more likely to be diagnosed with MS than men.

The unpredictable, episodic, and progressive nature of this disease creates serious financial and practical challenges for Canadian families who live with MS.

We need to continue to press Canada’s government to focus on improving #LifeWithMS.

Ask your MP to support these critical steps:

Make Work...Work

by supporting MP Yurdiga’s Private Member’s Motion M-192 focused on episodic disabilities like MS.

Make Ends Meet

by improving income and disability supports for people with MS who are unable to work or can only work on an intermittent basis such as making the Disability Tax Credit refundable.

Make Access a Reality

by passing the proposed Accessible Canada Act, increasing access to treatments, and investing in comprehensive care and housing.

Make Health Research a Priority

by continuing to invest in fundamental research and by recognizing and supporting the unique role health charities like the MS Society and patients play in the health research ecosystem.

Our Impact

Our continued collective voice is making an impact. On May 30, 2018 Member of Parliament for Fort McMurray – Cold Lake, Mr. David Yurdiga, put forth a Private Member’s motion (M-192) focused on episodic disabilities like MS. This campaign asks all MPs to support this motion. Additionally, on June 20, the federal government tabled the Proposed Accessible Canada Act, which includes “episodic” in the definition of disability.
