We received good news today from the Government of Canada Budget 2015 announcement.  The Compassionate Care Benefit has been officially extended from six to 26 weeks. This is a really important step forward to support caregivers who are caring for a loved one at home. We thank the federal government for their commitment to the extension of the CCB.

Are you a Volunteer?

The ALS Society of Alberta is looking for volunteers to help our WALK Committees. Every year, with the support of the Society, volunteers put on fabulous walks all across Alberta. We really do have great volunteers, and we wouldn’t be able to have these walks without them!

Edmonton, Camrose and Red Deer have a current need for more volunteers to help with their upcoming WALKs. From being on the committee to just volunteering the day of the event, there are opportunities for every variation of volunteer.

If you are interested in volunteering, or would just like more information, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

We really do have the best volunteers, and we hope to see YOU soon!
