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.  


Fall 2014
Partners in Transforming Lives Through Mobility

As we head into the final weeks of 2014, we are amazed by all we have accomplished on behalf of our sponsors this year! We have committed over 2,500 wheelchairs for delivery around the world. We have advanced our sustainability target with a large Rotary International Global Grant. Most importantly, we have transformed hundreds of thousands of lives to date. We look forward to your continued partnership in 2015 and beyond!  

Our Champions Say it Best!

What is it about wheelchairs that make such a powerful impact on the lives of others? We asked our devoted partners and you may be surprised by what they told us!

Save the Date!

December 2nd

What is it and why participate? Simply put, GivingTuesday is the perfect antidote after a weekend of serious consumerism! Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday it is a time for the world to show how powerful humanity can be when we unite to give and volunteer on a single day.


We are especially excited to announce that all online donations from new donors made on December 2nd will be matched up to $4,000! Click here to be part of this amazing celebration!

Global Sponsorship

In the summer we announced the possibility of a change to our program structure. Due to the realities of increased global manufacturing and transportation costs we now need to adjust the amount to sponsor a wheelchair to $190. This still represents excellent value at a fraction of the North American retail price for a wheelchair of comparable quality, excluding shipping.


The new sponsorship amount will apply to all mobility projects going forward. Please contact us if you have questions or comments. Thank you for your continued support that provides the gift of mobility and brings hope for the future! 

Knights of Columbus Serve in Ukraine

Knights of Columbus in Manitoba hold a special place in their hearts for 5 newly established Ukraine councils. Anxious to support the members' efforts to make a difference, the Manitoba Knights sponsored 2 containers of brand new wheelchairs!


Their tangible gift of mobility forever changed the life of Xenia, a 9 year old girl afflicted with spina bifida. Learn more about her excitment to receive the gift of mobility here

At this special time of year we would like to wish you peace, joy and the opportunity to be close to those you love.

On behalf of our entire team, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all the best in the New Year!
