Our Programs and Services

Originally founded in 1951, Ontario March of Dimes has been on the forefront of the disability movement for more than 60 years.  In 2005, the operating name of March of Dimes Canada was registered as a national charitable organization to begin the expansion of our programs and services nationally.
