Manitoba Community Wheelchair Program
For over thirty years, SMD has been providing children and adults in Manitoba with manual and motorized wheelchairs. SMD Wheelchair Services also repairs and provides maintenance service to make sure wheelchairs remain in optimum operating condition to maximize individual independence.
Our focus is on meeting the basic mobility needs of people who are active and independent within the community. Wheelchairs people receive from SMD Wheelchair Services are specific to their individual needs. There are currently over 8,000 Manitobans with wheelchairs from SMD Wheelchair Services.
Before applying to the program, people who require a wheelchair for a minumum of six months should consult with their health care professional to determine what would be best for their specific needs. The health care professional can also help make help make arrangements directly with SMD Wheelchair Services.
SMD Wheelchair Services provides maintenance and repair services directly at consumers' homes, workplaces or schools within the City of Winnipeg. Emergency repair service is also available. For inquiries regarding rural maintenance and repair please call 1-800-836-5551.
