Patient Transportation Support

Printer-friendly version

For people living with ALS who are unable to fund transportation themselves, the Transportation Support Program provides transportation to attend appointments at the ALS Centre in Vancouver and other ALS-related medical appointments, support groups and society events. The program was initiated to ensure that all people living with ALS in BC and Yukon are given an equal opportunity to see an ALS specialist in order to improve their quality of life. 

The Society had 292 trips in 2016  (2015: 321, 2014: 269, 2013: 245).

100% of transportation support received by the office were processed. In 2016, the annual expense of the program excluding administrative expenses was $26K  (2015:$45K, 2014-$43K, 2013-$40K)
