When you give us feedback, we listen! For the past year, we’ve been working on redesigning our website to fix some simple flaws that were making it harder for you to find the information you need.

Hopefully, this new website will help alleviate those problems.

Here are the top five ways we improved our website—so you can ignore the technical stuff and focus on getting the resources and support you need from the Spinal Cord Injury BC community.

1. Size and Accessibility Matters

Our website text is now two font sizes larger and our talented webmaster made sure that our entire site is “responsive”. This means that our new website should be easy to read and navigate whether you are using your cell phone, a tablet or zooming in by pressing Ctrl +.

Since the latest technology is necessary to build responsive sites like this one, you will have a better experience if you update your browser. Click here to learn more about the browser you’re using and to do a quick update if necessary: whatbrowser.org.

2. Our Impact

If you are new to Spinal Cord Injury BC, you might be wondering what we do and why we do it. That’s why we created a new section called Impact. Instead of telling you about the impact we think we have on the community, we decided to let our peers, family members, staff and volunteers tell their success stories in their own words. If you have an Impact story you would like to share, we would love to hear from you! Please email Maya Pankalla at mpankalla@sci-bc.ca.

3. Building Our Community

We wanted to make it easier to join the Spinal Cord Injury community. So, now you can sign up for a free membership online using this form which you can easily find by clicking the blue BECOME A MEMBER BUTTON available on each page throughout this site.

If you just want someone to talk to, you can also find information about our Infoline by clicking on our green CALL OUR INFOLINE button on the right-hand column.

4. Get To Know Us

Are you curious about who we are? Check out our staff page, where you can sort through our staff by department and click on our photos to read our biographies.

5. Stay in Touch

We’ve updated our blog page so that you can search through our blogs by category, and we’ve added a link to our videos as well as another page to let you submit your own stories.

We’ve also changed our Events page to make events in your community easier to find. If you want to stay on top of all the Spinal Cord Injury BC news and events happening in your community, you can also sign up for our newsletter. Simply become a member and you’ll receive our monthly e-newsletters, as well as free copies of The Spin Magazine and our Annual Report.

The best thing about the internet is that websites can constantly change and adapt, so please let us know what you think! If you have any questions about our new site or have any suggestions, don’t hesitate to let us know at mpankalla@sci-bc.ca.
