logo shown on this page was adopted by the Foundation
in 1998, following the lead of cerebral palsy organizations
in Western Canada. It shows two stylized individuals -
one using a wheelchair and one using a walker or cane.
Both are depicted as active or "on the move".
They are shown within a circle, which borrows from the
native "circle of life" concept and also symbolizes
the idea of inclusion, because they are part of the circle.
The width of the circle varies in recognition that needs
change during every life cycle and individuals may need
more or less assistance at different times in their lives
