Do you want to make a difference in the lives of Canadians affected by Parkinson’s disease? If so, we invite you to join our Parkinson’s Ambassador Network. You and other volunteers will play an important role in the upcoming 2015 federal election as representatives of the Parkinson’s community in political ridings across Canada.
Parkinson Society Canada will help connect each Parkinson’s Ambassador with their local Member of Parliament and candidates to discuss issues affecting the Parkinson’s community. We will support our ambassadors throughout the campaign, providing online training, briefings on policy priorities and ongoing guidance to ensure ambassadors are fully prepared for their responsibilities during the election. Parkinson’s Ambassadors may also have an opportunity to participate in other national and provincial advocacy initiatives beyond the election. For more information, visit our website.
Whether you are a person with Parkinson’s, a caregiver to someone living with the disease, or simply want to help with the cause, you can be a champion in your community by being the voice for Canadians with Parkinson’s!
