Spinal Cord Injury Ontario has always been about making life with SCI easier and increasing knowledge around disability and accessibility. Which is why we’re proud of our new social venture, Cortree Disability Education Centre. It’s where people with SCI and other physical disabilities and their families can go for info on relevant topics such as Choosing a Wheelchair, Pain Management, Sexual Health and Vehicle Modification. It’s also where business and medical pros can go for important expert training.
Physical distancing doesn’t mean being alone.
We are constantly developing new topics of online and offline learning to help you stay healthy, make your home accessible, get back to work and live the life you choose. As well as help you keep up with disability legislation and protocol. Cortree is usually free only to registered SCIO clients, people with SCI and their family members, but in response to COVID-19, we are making Cortree available to all for free.
