About Us

The ALS Society of BC was founded in 1981 by ALS patients, their family members and healthcare professionals to meet the physical and emotional needs of people living with ALS and their caregivers.

Mission Statement

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:

  1. To provide direct support to patients, their families, and caregivers. This includes an equipment loan program.
  2. To raise funds for patient services and research, and
  3. To increase public awareness and understanding of ALS
