With the 2019 federal election campaign underway, are you curious about what the parties are saying about the issues that could affect Canada’s ALS community?
ALS Canada asked each of the major parties what they would do to, if elected, to help people and families affected by ALS.
Specifically, we asked them about how they would improve equitable, timely and affordable access to proven ALS therapies and patient engagement, provide dedicated ALS research funding, and implement a palliative care strategy.
As you go to the polls on October 21, we hope this blog post helps inform you about the issues affecting people and families living with ALS. Read each of the party’s responses below to learn more.
ALS Canada would like to thank the parties for their participation and responses.
*NOTE: All responses are directly from the parties. ALS Canada did not edit or change the responses in any way.
