Whether you reside in Canada or the United States, there is a way for you to obtain financial help for the purchase of an adaptive tricycle. We work closely with organizations that will help defray costs. It's important to make sure you know which options might apply to your situation, as some organizations provide assistance related to a diagnostic while others offer equipment-specific funding.

In Quebec, the Programme d’attribution des tricycles et vélos adaptés by the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) allocates adapted bicycles and tricycles to disabled kids. You'll find more information on IRDLM and IRDPQ websites, the two organizations mandated by the MSSS to manage this program.
Do not let the cost of a new adapted tricycle discourage you from purchasing it. It could change your child's life and your whole family's! Whether you live in Canada or the United States, there are many organizations that can help you.
