Spinal Cord Injury BC is the go-to resource for the spinal cord injury (SCI) community. But we’re so much more than your typical disability organization.
We’re a national leader in peer support, we excel at helping people form social connections and challenge themselves, and we take pride in developing our information resources. We’re innovative—we like to push the envelope and try new things. And we tell powerful stories through our magazine, videos, and donor communications about how our members adapt, adjust and thrive after an injury.
All of our staff come from various backgrounds and areas of expertise but we all share one thing: passion for people. We challenge, support, and inspire one another. We are invested in each other’s personal and professional development and foster a flexible, fun, and dedicated office culture.
We are growing our team of high-performing, innovative people with a passion for positive change. If that sounds like you, read on!
