Advocacy & Awareness

 

Neurological Health Charities Canada (NHCC)

 

In 2008, a new coalition, called Neurological Health Charities Canada (NHCC), was formed by Voluntary Health Organizations that represent specific neurological diseases/disorders from across Canada in order to serve as one voice to provide a stronger sense of community and influence for positive change for those persons affected by Neurological Diseases.

 

The NHCC rapidly evolved into an effective organization that has obtained financial support from both the Federal and Ontario governments for two important projects concerning the incidence and management of the disabilities caused by chronic neurological conditions.

 

Because CNSF and the NHCC have almost identical objectives, the CNSF accepted the invitation to join the NHCC and to channel its current advocacy efforts though that coalition. The CNSF will continue its internal advocacy efforts through its Advocacy Committee.

We continue the push for a Canadian Action Plan for Brain Health and met face-to-face with MPs and Senators.  We feel that this is a crucial way to keep the needs of people affected by brain conditions in the forefront.
