The ALS Society of BC is dedicated to providing direct support to ALS patients, along with their families and caregivers, to ensure the best quality of life possible while living with ALS. Through assisting research, we are committed to finding the cause of, and cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
The ALS Society of BC has three principal objectives:
- To provide direct support to patients, their families, and caregivers. This includes an equipment loan program.
- To raise funds for patient services and research, and
- To increase public awareness and understanding of ALS
The ALS Society of BC was founded by ALS patients, their family members and healthcare professionals to meet the physical and emotional needs of people living with ALS and their caregivers. Since 1981, the Society has helped thousands of patients and their families, by providing direct services, information, and support.
What People Are Saying
"I have been a member of ALSBC & Yukon since 2002 and have been treated like a rock star when I have required equipment to deal with my mobility issues. Many of us could not have dealt with the financial burden if not for the help from ALSBC patient services. "
— Gord Shannon
"Were it not for the ALS Society of British Columbia, I would not have an excellent walker, and reclining armchair. These make my life so much more manageable."
