ALS Canada helps people diagnosed with ALS to cope with the daily challenges of decreasing mobility and communication ability and to help with retaining independence. Access to equipment and assistive devices is essential for your safety, comfort and functioning as a person living with ALS.

The ALS Canada Equipment Program provides access to basic and essential assistive equipment through:

  • Loan equipment program
