Community support

ALS Canada’s team of Community Leads provide support and assistance to people and families living with ALS. Community Leads help to navigate healthcare systems and community supports, and provide information, resources, and education. Community Leads offer both virtual and in-person home visits to discuss individual and family needs. They also facilitate support groups for people living with ALS, their family members and their caregivers.

Please note that ALS Canada Community Leads do not provide medical advice or make referrals or recommendations related to drug therapies or alternative therapies. These questions should be discussed directly with your medical professional – ideally an ALS neurologist, who would be qualified to interpret clinical information for individual situations. Please visit our list of ALS clinics to help you to connect with a clinic in your area.

You must be registered with ALS Canada to receive support from a Community Lead and other ALS Canada services.

ALS Canada Support Group schedule

Please note that not all support groups will be running during the summer to accommodate holidays. Check with your Community Lead for the schedule.
