About MS


Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the world, with an estimated 77,000 Canadians living with the disease. While it is most often diagnosed in young adults aged 20 to 49, younger children and older adults are also diagnosed with the disease.

MS is a complex and unpredictable disease, affecting vision, hearing, memory, balance, and mobility. Its effects are not only physical, but emotional and financial, and they last a lifetime.

The MS Society of Canada's mission is to fund ground-breaking MS research and provide support and services for people living with MS through 120 chapters from coast-to-coast, and a world class network of researchers.

But we can't do it alone. We are asking Canadians one simple question:
Will you do whatever it takes in the fight to end MS?
