Founded on December 1, 1970 the mission of the Stroke Recovery Association of Manitoba Inc. is to improve the quality of life for stroke survivors and their families.

Established in 1971 SAM is a the oldest stroke recovery association in Canada and is a not for profit registered charity.

Every penny of every dollar, 100%, stays here in Manitoba providing program supports and services to stroke survivors, family, and friends.

Located in beautiful St. Boniface across from Provencher Park there is easy access by car and bus and plenty of parking.

Strong along the wide boulevard and drop in the coffee shops, unique specialty stores, restaurants and the library.

The backbone of SAM and reason for SAM’s success is the heart of volunteers – people from all walks of life to be teachers, peer support, community outreach, program facilitators, office assistance, board and committee participation, writers, researchers, brochure mailing, reception – all the activities that bring an organization and community to life.

Contact SAM for a tour of our facilities, information and to request a speaker for your group or simply drop in for coffee.

Sidewalk sale and Barbeque

A big thank you to all who came by our sidewalk sale on August 4th and made it the success that it was. I really would like to give an extra special thanks to the young men and women who came out to help. You came out raring to go, with an eagerness to help. Spreading the word through your own social media links was very much appreciated as well. We couldn’t have done it without you.
