Woman using wheelchair looking out windowIn collaboration with the Mobility Team, we have conducted a scan of legislation, regulations and programs governing funding for wheelchairs and scooters for people with disabilities in 14 jurisdictions in Canada – federal, provincial and territorial.   This is the second of three reports supporting the work of each research team. The first reviewed policy governing employment supports. The third will be forthcoming in the winter, focusing on Sport & Leisure.

This report shows that legislation ensuring funding for wheeled mobility is highly variable across the country. The report provides quick access to information about the legislation, programs, and contacts.
