Since 1945 Spinal Cord Injury Canada (formerly the Canadian Paraplegic Association) has been helping Canadians with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities, and their families to adapt and achieve independence, self -reliance and full community participation.
Spinal Cord Injury Canada has been the leader for over 65 years in initiating contact with newly injured individuals across Canada, working to provide support to the individual and his/her family to overcome both systematic and physical barriers. Providing counseling and support services, advocacy and information services, education and employment services and overall coordination delivered through our provincial divisions across Canada.
Our Peer Support Program has been an integral part of the services rendered to people affected by spinal cord injuries. Peer Support offers immediate, one-on-one, individualized support to people who have recently experienced a spinal cord injury. These four concepts allow Provincial Peer Support Programs to achieve their goal of “Peers helping Peers”. Spinal Cord Injury Canada knows that a peer – previously trained, properly matched and professionally supported – is a crucial element in rehabilitation success.
