A message to our volunteers:

As many of you would have heard from us last week, your health and the health of our MS Community is our top priority. We continue to closely monitor information on COVID-19 (Coronavirus) as released by the Public Health Agency of Canada and other local and regional public health authorities.

 

Recognizing the impacts of the rapidly changing COVID-19 health situation on our community, we remain vigilant in our response. We have suspended all MS Society of Canada in-person meetings, events, and programs until further notice. We feel this is an important action to take in reinforcing the prevention strategy of social distancing to safeguard the health of our MS Community. We are committed to updating you and will communicate with you as information changes.

 

Our work to support Canadians affected by MS will not stop. During this time, our mission is as important as ever. We’re in this together. We are encouraging virtual ways to connect members of the MS Community – especially through this time period. While we cannot gather in large groups for the coming weeks, you're encouraged to take advantage of our digital platforms to continue to advance volunteer initiatives, fundraise, advocate and communicate with each other. Please visit our website here for more information.
