CareNow Ontario works to create awareness and drive action for the development of a health and social services system that addresses the needs of those who have chronic and complex environmentally linked illnesses. Specifically, CareNow seeks to improve access to services for those who have Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Fibromyalgia (FM) and Environmental Sensitivities/Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (ES/MCS).
In the absence of an established system of care, nearly one million people in Ontario live with these intrusive and often debilitating conditions knowing that their physicians lack the diagnostic tools they need to create and support effective treatment plans. CareNow Ontario advocates to make real and effective change happen at both the government and community level so that people have essential and affordable pathways to medical and social care.
