Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with members of the MS community and representatives from the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada to mark MS Awareness Month (May) and to demonstrate his support for all Canadians impacted by the disease. The Prime Minister commended the advocacy efforts of these groups, which are focused on tangible recommendations to improve employment supports for people affected by MS (e.g. extend the duration of EI benefits from 15 weeks to 26 weeks to match compassionate care benefits) and to accelerate government's investment into research for progressive MS (e.g. to develop effective disease-modifying therapies for progressive MS, for which there are currently no treatments available).

"I want to thank Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for showing his support during MS Awareness Month," says Yves Savoie, president and CEO, MS Society of Canada. "Prime Minister Trudeau's visit with members of the MS community underscores the importance of our efforts to help improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of Canadians affected by multiple sclerosis as well as reinforces the Canadian Government's commitment to supporting research to help prevent and treat chronic conditions."

"I have lived with progressive MS for 20 years and I am very excited about Canada's leadership in the fight to end MS," says Marie Vaillant, Board Chair, Ontario and Nunavut Division, MS Society Canada and Board Vice Chair, Multiple Sclerosis International Federation. "Knowing that our country is a part of the global movement to bring together researchers to understand the progression of MS, develop clinical trials and find treatments that have eluded us so far is crucial to those of us who live with progressive MS."

From May 2-4, 2016 representatives from the MS Society of Canada and members of the MS community met with a range of parliamentarians in Ottawa to launch MS Awareness Month and to bring forward issues of the utmost importance for those affected by MS.
