ALS Canada is directly responsible for supporting clients living with ALS in Ontario, similarly to the responsibilities that each ALS Society has in the provinces across Canada.
We strive to address information needs of our clients, their caregivers and families, community healthcare professionals and the public about ALS and related issues through this website, our publications and newsletters.
For people with ALS, we provide referral services connecting them and their caregivers to community resources. ALS is an emotional and financial challenge. We help to demystify the complicated processes governing healthcare availability.
In this section you can register for our various support services, including the equipment loan program (with the signed approval of a neurologist), mentorship, support groups and home visits.
The client manual provides essential information about ALS and how it can be managed, and the research and community partners spaces presents the latest knowledge on the causes and treatment of ALS, and information on relevant health services offered by the provincial government.
