Faces of March of Dimes Canada


March of Dimes Door-to-Door Campaign is the longest running fundraiser of its kind in North America. For over sixty-five years March of Dimes has depended on the kindness and generosity of Canadians who open their doors, heart and wallets during our annual Door-to-Door Campaign.

This tradition started in 1949 when "Marching Mothers" went door to door to raise money for a polio cure. Thanks to their efforts, a vaccine was found and Canada was the first country to be declared polio-free. Today, March of Dimes Canada offers services to people with all types of physical disabilities. 

Your support provides:
  • Help to over 129,000 Canadians with disabilities
  • Support for stroke survivors, people with aphasia, post-polio, acquired brain injuries, their loved ones, and caregivers
  • Rehabilitation programs for stroke survivors and people with neurological motor disorders with our Conductive EducationĀ® program
  • Community integration services including employment services, life skills training, recreational and social opportunities
  • Personal support services such as attendant services, funding for home safety equipment, vehicle modification, and independent living housing 
After Stroke
