Who We Are

Our History

Spinal Cord Injury Canada Origin

Spinal Cord Injury Canada, formerly known as Canadian Paraplegic Association, was established in 1945 by WWII veterans who sustained spinal cord injuries in the war. Back then, our founders did amazing things like help create the Department of Veterans' Affairs, establish the world's first rehabilitation centre for people with spinal cord injuries, and build a supportive network of people and organizations across the country. SCI Canada is proud to follow their example, and continues to work across the country with and for people with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities.

Over the years, Spinal Cord Injury Canada established divisions across the country, which now includes eight provincial organizations, referred to as Corporate Members. Together, SCI Canada is a federated network supporting people with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities all across Canada.

Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan

In November 1964, SCI Sask, formerly known as CPA Saskatchewan Division, incorporated as a division to carry on the work of CPA within the territorial limits of Saskatchewan. The first Board of Management included H. Bielby, J.W.B. Bremner, F. Buchan, T.E. Hunt, R. March, A.C. McEown, J. McKeen, H.C. Rees, J.C. Sharman, W.E. Sinnett, H.J. Stensrud, and C.A. Wescott. 

On April 1 1990, the organization incorporated and registered under the Government of Saskatchewan Non-profit Corporations Act. 

On June 18 2015, the official name was changed to Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan Inc.
