    There are two national charitable organizations for CFS/M.E. & FM in Canada.
    Lydia Nielson, M.S.M., President of the National ME/FM Action Network, has been on the FM-CFS Canada Advisory Board since 2002. Odile Gérin, a Vice President of the National ME/FM Action Network, joined the FM-CFS Canada Advisory Board in 2005 to increase day-to-day cooperation. Since mid-2005, Lydia and Odile have been involved in FM-CFS Canada’s internal communications, and attended formal and informal meetings of the Board as part of the planning and policy development process. The Network’s Quest newsletter even devoted two columns to FM-CFS Canada.
