Founded in 1963, the Cerebral Palsy Association of Newfoundland and Labrador is a registered non-profit organization committed to improving the lives of people affected by cerebral palsy and other disabilities across our province. Our organization provides programs and services to promote CP awareness, acceptance, and understanding. We encourage and assist those living with CP to reach their maximum potential. We provide many social events, host activities, and facilitate support groups for people of all ages. Additionally, we aid families through direct assistance to help ease the burden of medical expenses such as travel and equipment. CPANL is a member of the Cerebral Palsy Canada Network.
