For nearly 40 years, OCPSA has helped thousands of children and adults with cerebral palsy and similar disabilities achieve active lifestyles and be socially engaged with their peers, families and communities, not only as building blocks to life-long health and wellbeing, but also to reach their full potential in life through personal growth, achievement and greater levels of independence.
Keep the people and volunteers in our programs safe, and to continue our work to improve the quality of life and overall wellness (physical, emotional, mental and social) of all those we serve through physical activity programming, and related care and support.
Who do we serve?
• Children and adults with cerebral palsy, stroke, acquired brain injury, and/or similar impairment, as well as their families and extended communities.
• Program delivery partners including schools, health care facilities, rehabilitation/treatment centres, and grassroots organizations.
• Program delivery volunteers who are the lifeblood of OCPSA.
