March of Dimes
March of Dimes Canada has been building an inclusive society since 1951, improving the lives and livelihoods of people with disabilities.

Assistive Devices Program
The Assistive Devices Program can help you buy, repair and maintain a wide variety of mobility or assistive equipment (including wheelchairs). The Program may also have contact information or resources to help you find alternate funding sources in your area. The Program can also help you obtain funding from local service groups through partnerships with other organizations. The Assistive Devices Program is funded by the United Way in certain locations.

Home & Vehicle Modification Program
March of Dimes Canada's Home & Vehicle Modification® Program provides funding for basic home and/or vehicle modifications. The program is intended to assist permanent Ontario residents with a substantial impairment expected to last one year or more. By reducing or eliminating life safety risks, these modifications enable children and adults with mobility restrictions to continue living in their homes, avoid job loss and participate in their communities.
