About Anthony Lue

In September 2009, at age 21, Anthony Lue’s life changed forever when he sustained a severe spinal cord injury and was paralyzed from the waist down. His hopes and dreams of being a world-class athlete were shattered, or so he thought. With perseverance, Anthony built new dreams and learned to view the world through a new lens to live a fulfilling and inspiring life.

Today, Anthony is an entrepreneur, who has established a not-for-profit organization, and is building a career in the field of accessibility, as well as various other consulting services. He has spoken at a variety of schools, corporate events, television, and on radio, as well as is an ambassador for two of Canada’s largest accessibility trade shows—“The People in Motion Show” and the “Abilities Expo.” Anthony is pursuing his lifelong Olympic dream as a 2024 Paris Paralympic hopeful in the sport of handcycling.
