Connecting to one another virtually

March of Dimes Canada is committed to continuing to provide the supports our community needs in new and innovative ways through this challenging time of the COVID-19 pandemic.

After Stroke has a number of virtual (online) sessions, workshops and programs, so you can maintain your connection with the community from the comfort and safety of your home.

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 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
