About us

The Cerebral Palsy Foundation (Saint John) Inc., founded in 1956, is the only association in New Brunswick that represents persons with cerebral palsy. The Foundation provides financial assistance to assist with the purchase of equipment, provides general information about cerebral palsy and serves as a support group to its members.

The Foundation is a non-profit organization, managed entirely by volunteers. Our funding comes from donations by individuals and service organizations, from our own fundraising efforts and from our membership fees. 

We welcome opportunities to partner with New Brunswick businesses and organizations in order to increase awareness and support for those living with cerebral palsy.

Except during the summer months and in January and February, the Foundation meets at 7:00 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month in the St Mary's Band Hall at 12 Brinley Street, Saint John and welcomes visitors and new members. Details of upcoming meetings may be found on our News & Events page.

Our logo

The 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 to remain included
