ALS Canada's New Service Model

ALS Canada - Ontario Client Services continues to be committed to providing services to the approximately 1,100 individuals and their families living with ALS in Ontario by expanding our service coverage.

Currently there are Regional Managers in a number of areas; however, there are regions within the province that do not have a specific contact person. In an effort to ensure that all clients have equal access to services, effective February 4, 2013, we are introducing a new service model that re-aligns the service area of our current resources to be in accord with the local Community Care Access Centres (CCAC). This means that there will be a Regional Manager designated for all areas within the province.

Last October, a three-year strategic plan for ALS Canada was developed and supported by the Board of Directors. In this plan, the vision for Ontario Client Services is to provide consistent quality programs and services delivered throughout the continuum of the disease to people living with ALS across the province. We are committed to achieving this vision.

The role of the Regional Manager will continue to be:

  • To provide information about ALS
  • To assist in advocating for timely and appropriate services to meet the needs of clients and families
  • To enhance community awareness about ALS

This exciting opportunity will allow us to work with the clients, families, healthcare professionals and community services to ensure every moment matters.
