I would like to thank you so very much for your recent efforts on my behalf. The bar that you constructed for my wheelchair has been a complete success. I realize that a simple metal bar will not change the world but it has made my wanderings in it a lot easier."

Calgary Chapter


Contact: Tom Parks  
Telephone: 403-617-6405  
Email: tetracalg@yahoo.com  


Our Chapter, consisting of 10 - 15 volunteers, has been active since the late 90’s. We are motivated by the big THANK YOUs of our clients.

Please browse previous Calgary projects for ideas or contact us to explore how we can make your life easier.

The picture on the right is an example of our volunteers' ingenuity - an e-book stand which can be clipped on a wheelchair tray or other surface. It was beautifully made from laminated, three-ply veneer by volunteer Brian Graham.


We operate out of a 900 square foot fully-equipped machine shop
in Inglewood.

We're at 101 - 1439, 17th Avenue S.E, Calgary. The space is generously provided by The Calgary Drop-In Centre, and we are always on the lookout for donations of tools, equipment and funds to furnish our shop.


Your Generosity is greatly appreciated:
