    I have been following Canada MS society since my diagnosis in 2014. I am an MS patient who is moving to Canada in a couple of months with my husband as he got a job offer there. I wanted to know what are the options for my medication coverage, MRI, consultation and all. Will it be paid by the government or an insurance company or out of pocket? Who should I ask ?
