CPA is Now SCI Manitoba!

Our name has changed from Canadian Paraplegic Association (Manitoba), better known as CPA Manitoba, to Spinal Cord Injury Manitoba, or as we prefer, SCI Manitoba.

This change was needed to better reflect the people we serve. Our membership consists of more than 1,200 individuals living with spinal cord injuries in Manitoba, but the term “Paraplegic” in our former name only described half of our members. The other half have spinal cord injuries at the cervical level of the spine, and are therefore considered tetraplegic. Our new name, SCI Manitoba, now accurately reflects all people living with spinal cord injuries in our province.
