To assist persons with spinal cord injuries and other disabilities to achieve independence, self-reliance and full community participation.
Since our founding in 1945 by a group of World War II veterans, SCI Ontario has been committed to reaching out and responding to the needs of all Ontarians with spinal cord injuries and their families. It is estimated that over 365 new permanent injuries occur in Ontario yearly.
From the moment of injury, SCI Ontario has been there to help people achieve independence, self-reliance and full community participation through our core programs and services; peer support, rehabilitation counselling, vocation/ employment services, advocacy, case management, information services, and attendant services.
