Welcome to the ALS Society of Newfoundland and Labrador. The ALS Society of Newfoundland and Labrador is dedicated to supporting Newfoundland and Labradoreans living with ALS and in conjunction with ALS Canada investing in research to make ALS a treatable, not terminal, disease. We are a registered charity that receives no core government funding – all of our services and research are funded through the generosity of our donors.

The ALS Society of NL has three principle objectives

To provide direct support to people with ALS, their families, and caregivers

To raise funds for patient services and research

To increase public awareness and understanding of ALS

The ALS Society of Newfoundland and Labrador also advocates provincially and locally for better government support and access within the healthcare system for people touched by ALS.

**Update March 22, 2020:
In light of the current COVID-19 situation and for the safety of those with ALS and the public at large, we would like to remind you that all our support group activities have been suspended across the province until further notice. However, we would like to reitirate that our Equipment Loan Program and support lines will continue. During this period, please rest assured that our organization continues with its mission to provide personalized support to our clients and their families touched by ALS. If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact us at 709-634-9499 / 1-888-364-9499 or by email cheryl@alsnl.ca
Thank you for your understanding. We will keep you updated on any new developments.
