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.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at contact@myeloma.ca or toll-free at 1-888-798-5771 with any questions regarding our programs and services.

The Ottawa-Gatineau Multiple Myeloma Community Network

The Ottawa-Gatineau Multiple Myeloma Community Network is a patient-managed and patient-centered group that provides information to newly diagnosed patients as well as a circle of mutual support from those who are further along in their journey with Myeloma. From patients, caregivers, family and friends we learn how to live with this disease.

The purpose of the Network is to break isolation, provide mutual support and share information.


The mission of the Network is to provide hope and to empower myeloma patients, family, caregivers and friends through education, advocacy, patient care and support and sharing experiences.
