Spinal Cord Injury Ontario
ParaSport Role: Partners
As a registered Canadian charity, we inspire organizations and individuals to learn about issues relating to living with a spinal cord injury, and to take philanthropic action to effect change.
SCI Ontario works to increase the health, mobility and options of those living with spinal cord injury and other disabilities all across this province. It’s a profoundly important job that is accomplished through an unwavering commitment to the person behind the disability, and by maintaining active relationships with the people and communities we serve and work alongside. We are experts in SCI and serve people with all disabilities.
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
