Opportunities for people with dementia

Join our Advisory Group!

Are you living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia?

Are you interested in sharing your skills and experiences to help us in our work nationwide?

The Alzheimer Society of Canada (ASC) is looking for people in the early stage of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia to form our new Advisory Group! Composed of a representative from each province, the Advisory Group will guide ASC in its work nationwide by building on each member’s “lived experience” of dementia.

Please note that only those selected for further consideration will be contacted.

About the Alzheimer Society of Canada

Since its founding in 1977, the Alzheimer Society of Canada has been providing services and support to Canadians affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The Alzheimer Society Federation consists of ten provincial Alzheimer Societies along with a network of 30 local Societies in Ontario and 20 regional Societies in Quebec. ASC plays a coordinating role in the Federation, focusing on five key areas:

  • Research
  • Knowledge translation and exchange
  • Advocacy
  • Providing services and support to Alzheimer Societies nationwide
  • Fundraising in order to carry out the previous four activities

ASC has been a world leader in advocating for the involvement of people with dementia in the work of organizations like ours. It is now time for us to expand our efforts to raise the voices of the people whom our organization is here to serve and represent.
