About MEVA

The M.E. Victoria Association was established in 1989 to help patients and their families cope with the physical and emotional strains arising from ME/CFS. We offer information and friendship to help people live with this devastating and misunderstood illness. We publish InforME magazine for members, host guest speakers, organize social gatherings, and assist members in any way we can. As a self-help group we depend on volunteers.

Our mandate is:

  • To support individuals and their families who are affected by this disease.

  • To create and promote greater awareness and understanding of ME/CFS among the medical community and general public.

  • To advocate for improved diagnostic, treatment and support services at the local, provincial and national level.

  • To organize and liaise with other ME/CFS support groups.

  • To raise funds in support of the continued operation of MEVA and for further research on ME/CFS.

MEVA is a Canadian registered charity (no. 14105 2662 RR0001).
