Update Regarding Apraxia Kids Canada

Dear Friends,

It is hard to believe how quickly spring is approaching.   Spring means Apraxia Awareness month, registering for the National Conference and that Walk for Apraxia event planning is in full swing.

We are writing today to provide an update on our application for charitable status as it relates to Apraxia Kids Canada.  The Canadian Revenue Agency recently contacted us needing additional information about our new organization.  After a thorough review with our legal counsel, the difficult decision has been made to withdraw our current application and reapply.

We know this is not the news you wanted to hear, but we believe this is in our best interest to achieve success in obtaining charitable status, which is still our priority.   We remain a formal and registered non-profit organization committed to our Apraxia stars, families, professionals, and friends.

Together with Apraxia Kids, we are committed to our entire Canadian community.    We know that more resources are needed for our families across Canada.   We are working with our professional community to develop those resources and educational materials as we continue to navigate this application process.

We want to ensure all families and professionals in Canada are receiving the most up to date evidence-based information and education available.

In the next few weeks, we will be opening our Canadian Walk for Apraxia events to celebrate our Apraxia Stars.   Funds raised from the Walk for Apraxia sustain the work of Apraxia Kids across Canada which includes Online support groups; free educational webinars & resources; training for speech therapists; funding speech tablets, providing conference scholarships and so much more.   Canadians have and will continue to benefit greatly from these programs.

We are so grateful for our community and wish this news was different.  However, we believe we will be a stronger organization in the end.   If you should have any questions or would like to talk further, please contact us at apraxia.kids.canada@gmail.com.

Thank you for your continued commitment to Apraxia Kids.

Best,
Brooke Rea & Angela Grimm
