Welcome to our ME/CFS & FM Support Group Site

***PLEASE NOTE: As of June 2016, our groups are on an indefinite hiatus.  We are no longer accepting new members or actively managing support groups.  Please see the “Resources” page for other forms of support.***

Our support groups are for people living with ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome)* and FM (Fibromyalgia) and are member-run. Our groups all follow the same format, which is intended to create a supportive environment where member experiences can be heard and shared with compassion. Members attend, coordinate and help run both in-person and online support groups across Canada.

You’ll find a lot of information on this website about who we are, the purpose of our groups and what you can expect at our meetings. If you’re interested in joining one of our groups, please:

  1. Read the Group Focus and Format pages on this site to make sure our groups are a good fit for you. (If not, please try the websites on the Resources page for other kinds of support).
  2. Check out the Meetings page for meeting options, locations and schedules.
  3. Go to the Contact | Join page to sign up and become a member.

Thank you and we hope to see you soon!

*Although this illness is called by as many names as it has symptoms, for the sake of ease and clarity our group interchangeably uses the names “ME”, “CFS” or “ME/CFS” to refer to this illness.
