Research Opportunities

An art and a science

Sound research is critical in shaping the experience and opportunities of those with spinal cord injury. We fund research in some cases, lead research teams or projects, and participate in diverse research as much as we can. We believe in collaboration to achieve optimal results, and welcome information about research opportunities for our community.

Opportunities for Researchers

Spinal Cord Injury Ontario wants to help researchers share ethics-approved research opportunities and results with our community. If you are a researcher, affiliated with a research organization, consider our research promotion package that gets the word out in a big way, and generates the interest and engagement of relevant participants.

Opportunities for Research Participants

Spinal Cord Injury Ontario may not be affiliated with the researcher or the research project and provides this information as a resource to those who may be interested in participating. To learn more about a particular study please contact the person identified with each project.

We encourage you to do your own research before agreeing to participate in any study.


Medication Payment Study

How are you paying for your medications? Through coverage or compromise? Please tell us!

Micro-aggressions & micro-affirmations study

A research team from Wilfred Laurier University and the University of British Columbia is conducting a study on subtle forms of discrimination and affirmations experienced by people living with physical disabilities. These experiences are sometimes referred to as micro-aggressions and micro-affirmations, respectively.

Multiple Perspectives Study

We are looking for people with an SCI who received mentorship from a fellow person with an SCI or who provided mentorship, to understand the experience. We would also like to hear from family and friends of those who received or provided this support to discuss their impressions of peer mentorship programs.
