Connecting with your MPP
Members of Provincial Parliament (MPPs) are important champions for people with spinal cord injuries in Ontario. As a resident in your community, your elected MPP has the influence to represent you at Queen’s Park. They represent your needs for accessibility and health care, as well as fair and equitable services. To build a relationship with your local MPP, simply reach out and have a conversation.

Four Urgent Issues
Mobility devices – manual and motorized wheelchairs – allow people to live, play and work independently and, for those with a permanent disability, should be considered a human right over their lifetime. The mobility device sector needs to change.
There should be a province-wide comprehensive medical supply coverage program for those with permanent needs. For example, every person who uses intermittent catheterization should be able to rely on full coverage of catheters. Hence, our #peeforfree campaign.
The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act was adopted in order to eliminate barriers to participation of individuals with disabilities. Ontario should be fully accessible by 2025 but we are off course. We need a government that will make accessibility a priority.
June Election Campaign
During the 2018 provincial election, our community made their expectations known and contributed by connecting with MPPs about issues important to all Ontarians who want a more inclusive and equitable province. Raising awareness with candidates about the importance of these issues had impact. Here are some results:
- 668 emails sent by our community to candidates
- 121 candidate responses to our questionnaire on accessibility
- Four major parties confirmed meeting with SCIO within 100 days of election
