Financial Assistance

Filter navigation by:

An important part of fulfilling Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s mission is alleviating financial pressures for people with neuromuscular disorders and their families, and enabling Canadians with neuromuscular disorders to lead independent lives.

There are often extraordinary financial expenses, such as costly mobility equipment or assistive devices, attendant services, respite care, travel for medical appointments and home renovations.

Below are the programs that we offer to help!

    A percentage of funds raised by Chapter groups through local special events and activities are allotted to the Community Services Fund. This fund enables people affected by neuromuscular disorders to benefit from the hard work of fundraising efforts conducted in their own community.
