About SMD Foundation
Our main purpose is to raise awareness and funds. Additionally, SMD is the provincial affiliate for Easter Seals™ Canada and also fundraise under the Easter Seals™ Manitoba name.
Awareness is vital in promoting a greater understanding of disabilities, which provides people with a compelling reason to give.
Fundraising is essential to maintaining, expanding and improving SMD's programs and services that so many Manitobans living with disabilities depend on.
One of the best ways to raise awareness is by actually getting involved with the SMD foundation. Experience first hand the many ways you can contribute and make a difference in someone else's life.

13.7% of Canadians live with a disability. You may know a friend, neighbour or family member living with a disability. It may be someone with a physical disability that they’ve had since birth or the result of an injury. It may be someone with an invisible disability such as Deafness or a chronic condition. It may be someone very young or an older person who has developed an age-related disability. No matter what a person's age or disability might be, SMD Foundation and Easter Seals™ Manitoba is there, supporting the programs and services that support others.
