Susana Scott, the visionary leader behind Brematson Disability Advocates, has redefined the landscape of disability advocacy. With unwavering dedication and a commitment to inclusivity, Scott’s organization has become a catalyst for change, empowering individuals and transforming communities across Canada.
Scott’s journey began when her daughter was born with Spina Bifida, which ignited her passion for championing the rights of people with disabilities. Drawing upon her experience as a Special Assistant to the Minister and President of the Treasury Board, Scott founded Brematson Disability Advocates in 2004. Since then, the organization has emerged as a national force, navigating government bureaucracy, and advocating for effective policy reform.
Beyond her advocacy work, Scott has sponsored initiatives like the SMD All Abilities Dance Group and the City of Winnipeg’s Sponsor Winnipeg program, bringing greater awareness and inclusivity to the disability community. Her captivating speeches and TEDx talk have inspired audiences and shed light on the challenges faced by individuals with disabilities.

As a board member of Variety Manitoba, Scott continues to contribute to fundraising and marketing goals, amplifying the organization’s mission.
Building Brematson Disability Advocates from the ground up presented challenges, but Scott’s perseverance and success stories have shattered stigmas surrounding for-profit disability organizations. Personal tragedies have only reinforced her resilience and unwavering commitment to her family, faith, and business.
As Brematson Disability Advocates expands its reach, Scott remains steadfast in her mission to create a more inclusive society. Through her visionary leadership and unwavering dedication, she continues to empower individuals with disabilities and inspire positive change.
