About Us
The ALS Society of Canada was founded in 1977. Together with our Provincial Partners, we are dedicated to supporting Canadians living with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), and investing in research for the future, so ALS will be a treatable, not terminal disease. ALS Canada is a national organization responsible for the ALS Canada Research Program – funding peer-reviewed research grants and fostering collaboration amongst Canadian researchers, helping to nurture new ideas and build capacity. ALS Canada has a role in Ontario, similar to that of the Provincial Societies, providing services and support for people living within our provinces – we help fill the gaps between the healthcare system and needs of people living with ALS. We advocate federally, provincially and locally on behalf of people and their families for better government support and access within the healthcare system.
