Government Relations and Advocacy

Our role in the government relations committee is to advocate for proposed solutions that will improve the quality of life for those living with MS. The Government Relations committee serves to advocate for people living with MS to elected officials, policy and decision makers and other government stakeholders by:

  • monitoring and identifying needs, barriers, issues and opportunities to enhance quality of life for people living with multiple sclerosis, 
  • engaging other community members to take action, 
  • offering advice and recommendations on strategies and initiatives, and/or  
  • contributing to the advocacy of people living with MS by occasionally liaising and meeting with stakeholders. 

Our main project for 2019 is focused on the upcoming federal election

I Challenge MS

Simply put, I Challenge MS is you. It's any personal activity, event or group gathering where you are making a difference and raising money for Canadians living with MS. Your challenge may be setting up a bake sale or coin drive in your community; it may be training for and running a marathon to collect pledges; it may be organizing a week long fundraising campaign at your workplace; or it might be crossing an item off your bucket list halfway around the world. No challenge is "small" when you are dedicating time, effort, and passion in the fight to end MS.
