Welcome to our media page!
We want to raise awareness about people living with spinal cord injuries in Ontario. We want people to understand what it means when a person’s life changes in an instant – how easily it can happen. We want people to be aware of disability issues so their actions may be influenced.
Included on this page are several personal stories about people whose lives have been affected by a spinal cord injury. Please feel free to use these stories in your publication so that others become aware of people in their own communities living with spinal cord injuries.
Thank you for taking the time to visit this page.
