Update on the COVID-19 pandemic

Information regarding COVID-19 is in constant change, as is the situation regarding vaccination and prioritization for immune-compromised individuals.

If you have any COVID-19-related questions, we’ve created a specific COVID section on our website that can be accessed by clicking here or by selecting the “News & Events” tab from our homepage. In this section, you’ll find the latest news and information about the pandemic in Canada from trustworthy and reliable sources.

Any specific questions that you may have regarding the COVID-19 vaccination, delays between vaccine dosing, and prioritization within your province are best answered by your healthcare team. They’re the ones who know you and your particular situation and are therefore in a position to best address your unique concerns.

Created by, and entirely focused on, Canadians impacted by myeloma, Myeloma Canada is the only national charitable organization committed to providing you with the most up-to-date and reliable information on myeloma. Some of the ways we do this is through our monthly e-newsletter, “Myeloma Matters”, as well as through our social media platforms.

Advocacy in Canada

Over the past few years, an unprecedented number of new treatments became available to Canadian myeloma patients. This progress is thanks to the efforts and collaboration of Myeloma Canada with its industry partners and advocacy groups across the country. There are several ways in which we strive to continue to ensure that the voice of patients is heard.

Did you know?

Sharing the patient perspective is key to influencing recommendations and reimbursement decisions of myeloma treatments by Health Technology Assessment (HTA) agencies such as pCODR and the Institut national d’excellence en santé et en services sociaux (INESSS), and provincial payers. One of the ways we meet this objective is by conducting patient and caregiver surveys to better understand the patient journey and relay valuable information to decision makers.
