Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world.

It's true - 100 000 Canadians live with multiple sclerosis.

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?
