No. Although March of Dimes in the U.S. had its beginnings in a similar manner as Ontario March of Dimes – to raise money for research to fight the polio epidemic in North America in the 1950s – today, Ontario March of Dimes provides programs and services for people with physical disabilities, while March of Dimes in the U.S. funds research and programs to prevent birth defects and other medical complications in infants.
