As an independent association representing a specific clientele, it is important for us to promote the needs of SCI patients in public forum, within other associations and with government decision-making bodies. We also work hand in hand with other agencies involved in representing and defending the rights of persons with disabilities. This valuable partnership will ensure that the needs of some does not harm others and these connections reinforce our determination and commitment to advancing our common mission: to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.
We participate in various active committees and roundtables that focus on topics closely related to the needs of our members. Furthermore, we are also members of regional bodies and provincial agencies working together to advance the cause of people with disabilities.
Here is a list of some of the committees, groups and tables where we are represented:
- MEMO-Que Advocacy Committee
- STM accessible transport committee
- Involvement in several awareness committees
- Member of the Accessibe Housing Committee
- Work within the Social Services Committee
- Involvement in the employment services committee
