GBS/CIDP Montréal National Conference Walk and Roll

Thank you for attending the Montreal National Conference and joining us in celebrating 20 years of support, education, and advocacy for GBS, CIDP, MMN patients and families.

The GBS / CIDP Foundation of Canada would like to thank all the attendees this year. We brought together patients, families, volunteers, healthcare professionals, and sponsors in Montreal to learn and meet once again.
Thank-you everyone for making it a successful event. We hope it was all that you had hoped for. We will announce our next National Conference in the coming months as we move westward!

The Walter Keast award is given to an individual for exemplary service to the GBS, CIDP, and MMN community.

Nancy has passionately committed much of her personal time to raise awareness and supported our patients and families during 2022.

We are so proud of you Nancy, Congratulations

Our Vision:

Every person affected by GBS, CIDP, or variants such as MMN, will have access to early and accurate diagnosis, expert interdisciplinary treatment and support, and through continued research, a cure will be developed.

Our Mission:

To engage in advocacy, including treatment access,(at the federal, provincial and grassroots levels) to improve the quality of life for individuals and families affected by GBS, CIDP, or variants such as MMN.

The GBS/CIDP Foundation of Canada is a registered Canadian charity founded in 2003. Our foundation continues its long history of connecting patients and their families with caring and dedicated volunteers who have been affected by GBSCIDP, and variants, such as MMN. It is our hope that no patient or family will have to go through any of these disorders alone.

Along with this patient-to-patient support, the foundation has proudly established a National Medical Advisory Board of 18 Neurologists trained in the diagnosis and treatment of our disorders.

We are committed to building relationships with experts in rehabilitation and support disciplines who understand the challenges facing our patients during and after recovery. Our latest goal is to create a council of professionals that will help guide and educate patients on best practices in their disciplines.

We support Canadian research that will improve the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of patients affected by GBSCIDP, and variants. Our ultimate goal is to help pave the way to a cure. We proudly support IGOS and the Canadian contribution to the International GBS Outcome Study.

We are Challenging you to join us for the GBS /CIDP/MMN Awareness Challenge 2020!

This year our Challenge is simply to do an activity or simply “Strike a pose” holding your printed sign. Video your activity or take a pic, Challenge 2 more people, and Share the Challenge.
