SCITCS Mission Statement


  • By helping others to help themselves
  • Through support, education and research

Our Motto: Never say… “Never”

Our motto, Never Say… “Never”, remains the driving force behind our organization. The society promotes and financially supports applied research, bringing state-of-the-art technology and research to Northern Alberta. Currently the Centre is not a building or facility, it is people – people committed to improving the quality of life of people with a spinal cord injury.
