Since 1957, Spinal Cord Injury BC (SCI BC) has been dedicated to helping people with spinal cord injuries and related disabilities and their families, adjust, adapt, and thrive.
As a non-profit organization, we achieve our Vision and Mission through two core programs: Peer Support Services and Information Services.
Peer Support Services
Our Peer Program provides social connections and unique life experiences to individuals with a spinal cord injury or a related disability, and their families and friends. We also provide peer mentoring opportunities, so that people with new injuries can benefit from the wisdom and knowledge gained by those who have experience living with a similar disability.
More than half of Spinal Cord Injury BC’s staff are people with physical disabilities, so we really understand what our members are going through and just get it.
Our Info Centre helps people access all kinds of information relevant to living well with a spinal cord injury. People can search our online SCI Info Database, or connect with our InfoLine toll-free, Monday to Friday at 1-800-689-2477 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether someone needs help finding accessible housing, meaningful employment, special equipment or any other resources about living with a physical disability in BC, we’re here to help.
We acknowledge that our provincial work takes place on the territories of Indigenous peoples who have lived on and cared for the land for time immemorial. SCI BC’s head office, GF Strong resource centre, and shared Victoria office are located on the traditional and ancestral territory of the Coast Salish peoples – Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, Musqueam, and Lekwungen Nations. Our Prince George regional office is on the traditional and ancestral territory of the Lheidli T’enneh Nation.
