Hey Folks,

So it's time for a new chair. Here's the thing though. I have CP and I live in Canada.

Now, in Canada, unless you were injured in a motor vehicle accident all funding comes from the government. And it's very limited. They will cover a basic, clunky, non-fitting wheelchair.

Now, I have private insurance through my job and my mom's job that says they will cover up to $500 towards a new, basic wheelchair. I have also heard that it is hard to get private insurance to pay because the government will provide a wheelchair. The thing is, I have a bad shoulder and NEED an ultralight chair (I currently have a TiLite that I paid out of pocket for). Does anybody have any advice or success stories in this type of situation?

Thanks in Advance!
