Fall 2013
Partners in Transforming Lives Through Mobility

Taking stock of our 10th year, we have much to celebrate! The innovations and successes we achieved were only possible because of our many donors, volunteers and partners. Through the power of partnerships we have been able to expand our charitable reach, transforming lives through the gift of mobility in a growing list of over 40 countries. Learn more here!

At the Canadian Wheelchair Foundation's Annual General Meeting held on September 9th it was reported that 2012 yielded many 'first ever' exciting advancements. These included an inaugural wheelchair delivery to Russia, and introduction of an innovative, specialized pediatric wheelchair. Read the full report.

Friends of Fleetwood Break New Ground!

A breakthrough in identifying a reliable indigenous wheelchair manufacturer meant that this dedicated group of volunteers from Surrey, BC could accomplish their goal of delivering the much needed gift of mobility to recipients in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico.
