Living Well With Limb Loss

With more than 225,000 amputees in Canada (source: The War Amps of Canada), a consumer magazine of our own was long overdue. Enter thrive, a publication dedicated to the pursuit of living well with limb loss, a venue for peer and professional support, a launch pad for consumer advocacy and a social media conversation starter.


thrive is much more than a magazine… it’s a bond of popular media – print, online and social networking. It’s about industry partnerships that will provide those with limb loss with a first-rate resource for living well physically, emotionally and socially… to grow and to flourish.
