Created in June 1976, the Paraquad magazine has become over the years an invaluable link between our organization and its members and partners. Distrubuted freely to members, it is our communication tool of choice. This quarterly is aimed not only to people with spinal cord injuries and their families, but also to agencies and to a greater extent, to those who are interested in spinal cord injuries.
Topics covered in the magazine are consistent with the mission of our organization. Indeed, MEMO-Qc operates in four areas of activity: the social integration of people with SCI, the employability of people with disabilities, the rights and interests of disabled people, and support for research affecting spinal cord injuries. Similarly, these areas form the basis of the subjects found in our magazine, which contains short stories from the news, campaign updates, interviews with inspiring people, information about our activities, among others. Examples of topics of articles published during 2010-2011 are:
- The Registered Disability Savings Plan
- Chronic Pain
- Continuing employment for people with disabilities
- The accessibility of public transport
- Communicating through breathing
