​​​​Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan Inc. 

​​For over 50 years, Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan Inc., formerly known as Canadian Paraplegic Association (Saskatchewan) Inc. has supported people with spinal cord injury and other physical disabilities and their families.

The revised name of Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan Inc. resonates with the changing face of spinal cord injury: 

  • When the Canadian Paraplegic Association was formed by veterans returning from World War II, there were only those with paraplegia as higher injuries resulting in quadriplegia rarely survived
  • With advanced research and medical treatment, many individuals with SCI are living productive lives  
  • Spinal Cord Injury results from a broad range of causes, such as traumatic accidents, spinal cord related illness, cancer, and chronic conditions
  • People of all ages can be impacted by a physical disability
