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 British Columbia 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.  This includes access to an equipment loan program. By funding research, we are committed to find the cause of, and cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Our goal is to end ALS through creating a world class ALS Centre at UBC. 

Core Values/Beliefs

Unsurpassed Service: We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for our patients, their caregivers, and their families.

Teamwork: Our success is built on a team of dedicated staff and volunteers (Team ALS BC & Yukon) working for a common purpose.

Quality of Life:  Our goal is to continually improve the services needed to improve the quality of life of those living with ALS.

Equality of Care:  Everyone living with ALS has a right to equal care, no matter where they live in BC.

Dream Big:   We push the envelope constantly to improve what we can do to achieve results.

Vision – Long Term Goal – Aspiration
