MS Support Programs

Whether you’re seeking support for yourself, trying to find peers in the MS community, or are a caregiver, the MS Canada team has programs for you.

MS Knowledge Network

For disease, treatment and support information that is customized for your journey, connect with an MS Navigator from our MS Knowledge Network.

The MS Knowledge Network is the MS Canada’s hub of knowledge, providing consistent, quality MS information and support for anyone in Canada. MS Navigators provide trusted information on all aspects of life with MS. Whether you’re living with the disease, working with or caring for someone with MS, being able to tap into current, reliable information will enable you to make informed choices. 

MS Navigators are available to assist anyone in Canada from 8am to 8pm ET, Monday to Friday. 

Please note: MS Canada’s team of MS Navigators are not healthcare professionals; individuals living with MS are encouraged to talk with their healthcare team to discuss their options in managing their MS symptoms.

The MS Knowledge Network is not a distress centre nor a crisis organization. If you are in immediate need of support call 9-1-1 or go to your nearest hospital. There are a number of additional mental health supports available across Canada for all ages

Community Support

It may be difficult at times to talk about MS related symptoms with family and friends who may not grasp what it is like. Our 1:1 Peer Support Program and MS Support Groups bring together people diagnosed with MS, family, friends and caregivers affected by MS, to share common concerns and experiences in an informal and safe environment. 

Quality of Life Program

The Quality of Life Equipment Grants are designed to provide financial assistance to those requiring support with the purchase of mobility equipment, and safety devices.

To apply you can use the NEW online application and Heath Care Professional Assessment Form. These new online forms will allow you to save and resume and immediately submit your application. Please complete both forms if applying for new/used equipment or cooling products and only complete the Quality of Life Form for repairs.

CPP-D Application Support (CAS)

The CPP-D Application Support (CAS) aims to help individuals with MS who are applying for the Canada Pension Plan Disability benefit (CPP-D) successfully receive their benefits. We may be able to help you to determine your eligibility for the benefit and, if eligible, pair you up with trained volunteers (over the phone or virtually) who will get to know more about you and your MS. Volunteers will help guide you in completing Sections C2 & C8 of the CPP-D application to better clarify the impact that multiple sclerosis or an allied disease has on your ability to work.

If you are interested in receiving support from CAS, please contact our MS Navigators at 1-844-859-6789 or to get started. Please note, this program is for non-Quebec residents only.
