ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease) is a progressive neuromuscular disease in which nerve cells die and leave voluntary muscles paralyzed.

Every day two or three Canadians die of the disease.

ALS News

A year ago today, the team at ALS Canada and members of the ALS Community were in Ottawa announcing the generosity of Canadians who supported ALS through the Ice Bucket Challenge, which allowed ALS Canada to sign a partnership with Brain Canada for matching dollars for ALS research. 

We will be making a historic research announcement tomorrow! Watch for our upcoming announcement.



We are very pleased to announce that Lisa Droppo has joined ALS Canada as Vice President Client Services!

Dear ALS Community Partner:

We are seeking people with experiences and knowledge which connect to the needs of people living with ALS in Ontario, to participate in our Client Services Advisory Council, to help inform and make recommendations to the Board of ALS Canada.

Please join us for this complimentary series informing and discussing the field of ALS research. Hosted by Dr. David Taylor, Director of Research at ALS Canada, learn about the latest advancements in research, how your dollars are funding one of the best research programs in the world and how to get involved in clinical trials to help make ALS a treatable, not terminal disease.

Webinar 1: ALS in 2015: Up to the Challenge

Last month, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was re-ignited by the ALS Community. The team working at the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Club have always supported the Community and the cause. Last month, they extended an invitation to ALS Canada to bring clients and their families and donors together to enjoy a game.

We want to thank everyone who participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge this year as we continue to fight this disease.
