About AMPUTEE COALITION OF CANADA
The Amputee Coalition of Canada (ACC) was established in 2008 as a nonprofit organization. Its goal is to improve and advance the quality of life of persons with limb loss. The Amputee Coalition of Canada was created to improve quality of life of persons with limb loss in their communities by providing education and opportunities to gain skills, lessons and coping techniques that increase confidence, connectedness, and sense of belonging. Through the ACC, persons with limb loss are educated on how to best engage in social and physical activities following amputation and how to incorporate these activities into their lives. The ACC relies on structured and validated programs, with the involvement of persons with amputation, to encourage a culture of support, networking, and active participation in life following limb loss.
