Every nine minutes a Canadian will have a stroke. Over 62,000 Canadians have a stroke each year and there are over 400,000 stroke survivors in Canada. Stroke affects not only the survivor, but the entire family, loved ones and friends as they adjust to the ‘new normal’ which may include permanent physical disability, communication disorders such as aphasia and emotional difficulties, including depression.
After Stroke is a program of March of Dimes Canada and a national service offering support, education and community programs for stroke survivors, their caregivers, and families.
Our goal is to connect you with a network of support that can help you reclaim your independence, your sense of community and your ability to
thrive after a stroke.
Stroke Recovery Association of British Columbia is an affiliate of March of Dimes Canada and provides services, education and advocacy to those affected by stroke throughout every stage of recovery.
