March of Dimes Canada (MODC) is a federally registered national charity that offers a wide variety of programs and services to Canadians living with disabilities. Since 1951, March of Dimes Canada has been on the forefront of the disability movement with a mission that is dedicated to maximizing the independence, personal empowerment and community participation of people with disabilities. Our 2018-2023 strategic plan, Engaging Life, presents a bold vision of enhancing inclusion and accessibility; expanding our programs nationwide to serve more people with disabilities; building and strengthening strategic partnerships; and creating an appropriate and sustainable infrastructure. To help realize this vision we are adding a Vice President of Strategy, Integration and Partnerships (Vice President) to an exemplary and committed Executive Leadership Team (ELT).
