Federal ALS Caucus - An ongoing voice on Parliament Hill

October 4, 2016 was a momentous day for the ALS cause in Canada as the first meeting of the federal ALS Caucus was held. The ALS Caucus represents an established group of parliamentarians and senators of all political stripes who have come together to better understand the realities of ALS, including the care and research challenges it presents as well as opportunities to address them. ALS Canada spearheaded the creation of the caucus, which provides an ongoing forum for discussion with the federal government. 
On November 15, 2017, MP Francis Drouin, Chair of the Federal ALS Caucus met with representatives from ALS Centre at GF Strong; ALS Society of BC and BC ALS researchers as part of a nation-wide tour to better understand how needs to support people living with ALS may vary from province to province.
