The mission of the ALS Society of Quebec spans the province. Our services are offered to everyone, free of charge. These include a telephone support and information line, equipment loan and financial assistance programs and tele-workshops that allow people with ALS and their families to connect with others who may be going through similar experiences.

To find out more about our programs and services, consult the Support and Services section. .

Support Groups and Social Activities
For the past few years, ALS Quebec has been organizing support groups and social activities that can lessen the isolation sometimes felt by people with ALS and their families. These programs help people develop supportive relationships with others who are living through the same issues.
Our social activities welcome people with ALS in a warm and friendly atmosphere. If you are interested in getting involved and organizing an activity (such as a visit to a local museum, a fishing tournament, an apple picking day or a sugar bush outing) or if you want to put together a support group, please contact Elizabeth Barbosa at ebarbosa@sla-quebec.ca.

Fundraising Events
Our fundraising events held across the province are a great opportunity to gather the community, increase awareness, and raise money in support of the ALS Society’s mission.

For more information, please contact our Fund Development Coordinator.

Want to organize your own event or get involved in one of the events in your region? Visit the Create Your Own Event or Volunteer sections.

Clinics Specialized in ALS
There are several clinics that specialize in treating people diagnosed with ALS. Consult the list of ALS clinics.
