Who We Are


The Canadian Wheelchair Foundation/ Fondation  

Chaise Roulante Canada is an independent Canadian registered charity.


With the support of our Canadian and international partners and the generosity of independent sponsors we are transforming lives throughout the world -- one wheelchair  

at a time, a gift that extends hope, dignity, and freedom.  


Spring 2014

Partners in Transforming Lives Through Mobility

2014 has lifted off with a burst of activity! January saw the first mobility project of the year in South Africa with Canadian and UK Rotarians traveling over 2,000 km to deliver 280 wheelchairs. This was quickly followed by successful distributions in San Jose, Costa Rica and Colima, Mexico. The generosity of these incredible partners is truly inspiring!

Standing the test of time....
Anyone who works on international service projects hopes their efforts and resources will make a lasting impact and empower those they touch. Neil Swensrude, a Canadian Rotarian was recently able to see the long term results of his work first-hand! 
Touched by Angels  

The lack of mobility has many origins including aging, war and accidents. One of the most prominent is disease, and in honour of the 2014 International Rare Disease Day a group of Knights of Columbus were able to touch one such life in a profound way. Read Ana's story here.
Inspired to Volunteer?

Where does the passion for giving originate? To find out we talked with a special friend of the Canadian Wheelchair Foundation. Here is what she told us..... 

Wheelchairs Promote Education, Economic Development and Community Building 

Those who lack mobility will tell you that wheelchairs are not just an item, they are a tool for a better life. Their far-reaching, long term impact on entire communities may surprise you!
We continue to grow our partnerships and welcome new and exciting opportunities to deliver the gift of mobility to people around the world. Taking part in a wheelchair delivery can be life changing...are you ready to be deeply touched?

On behalf of our entire team, thank you for your passion and generosity,

Christiana Flessner
