Welcome

Over the last several years I've been dealing with various stages of disability thanks to ALS. My goal is to share solutions and review various products/tools/devices that I have found particularly helpful.

Helpful Links

I will be posting a number of ALS and disability related links here. Unfortunately the links I'll be posting here are going to be somewhat specific to my experience. Consequently, many of the links will probably be rather Québec specific.

Nonetheless, I hope some of the information here is useful to you.

Montréal & Québec-based Assistance


General Information & Useful Links

  • Disability Tax Credits from the Canadian Revenue Agency
    do not forget to apply for your tax credits, this can be a substantial sum of money. Some of these forms will require a doctor's assistance.
  •  Patients Like Me http://www.patientslikeme.com/
    this is a very useful website for tracking your progress over time, what medications and treatments you are receiving. Also the members in the forum are extremely helpful and friendly.
  • Cool Taxi http://www.cooltaxiquebec.ca/en/
    A prepaid taxi coupon option. Potentially very useful to help you avoid having to fumble for cash
