Funding Agencies

Funding Assistance

Columbia Speech and Language Services maintains a list of charities and agencies who fund children and adults in need of financial assistance for our stuttering programs.  We are happy to share this on request.

If you are a speech pathologist referring a client to our program, please note: Clients and their families need as much notice as possible to arrange their schedules and to contact funding agencies to apply for financial assistance, if necessary. For example, Columbia advises summer program clients to submit funding applications well before spring break; we advise you to talk to parents as early as January so that families have information in time to make key decisions.

Not all funding is based on financial need. The Fred Gingell Memorial Stuttering Treatment Support Program offers funding to residents of B.C. who are 19 and older. Clients registered in our program can apply for this grant, even if they are not in need financially. For more information, visit the Fred Gingell Memorial Treatment Program information page.

On our first meeting, we can explore other funding opportunites with you.  For example, employers may fund employees who stutter. The Insurance Corporation of B.C. and the B.C. Crime Victim Assistance Program have offered funding to people who stutter as a result of motor vehicle accidents or criminal injuries. Extended medical plans often cover a portion of stuttering treatment fees.

For more information, please contact us at: 604-875-9100.  Our receptionist is available to personally answer your calls from 9 to 5, Monday to Friday.
