Note: The stroke recovery branches are not located at the provincial office above. The individual branches take place at various locations throughout BC. These are noted below. All of these branches are non-affiliated to Stroke Recovery Canada.​




March of Dimes Canada (MODC) and the Stroke Recovery Association of British Columbia (SRABC) formed a formal affiliation on April 1, 2016. This collaboration links SRABC’s 37-year experience and knowledge in the field of stroke recovery with MODC’s community engagement and integration services for stroke survivors. The affiliation will also advance MODC’s national approach to the community re-integration of stroke survivors and supports to caregivers, and serve as a catalyst for advocacy in this often neglected, yet longest part, of a stroke survivor’s journey. Since 2011, March of Dimes Canada has been collaborating informally with SRABC on various stroke recovery initiatives in British Columbia; our formal collaboration will enhance stroke recovery support and services for consumers and their caregivers in British Columbia and grow services in Western Canada.
