Easter Seals™ Manitoba
Easter Seals™ has deep roots within the province, planted back in 1949 when the first Canadian campaign was introduced.
The campaign began in the spring because the symbolism of life and new beginnings echoed the newfound feelings, independence and abilities children with disabilities discovered through the programs and services funded by Easter Seals™. Today, the funding focus has grown to include adults with disabilities as well.
The SMD programs and services funded through Easter Seals™ Manitoba provide opportunities for people with disabilities to further their education, build successful careers, develop their life skills, explore recreational activities and create connections with professionals and equipment that can improve their overall quality of life. They strengthen the abilities people have, enable them to develop new ones and encourage them to use all their abilities to live their lives to the fullest. They promote participation, independence and personal empowerment.
Easter Seals™ Manitoba isn’t about disabilities. It’s about people…and about the abilities each person adds to the community, making it a better place to live.
The following programs are Easter Seals™ Canada initiiatives which are administered by the Easter Seals™ Manitoba office:
