Brain injury can happen to anyone


 

~Brain injury is the leading cause of death and disability for Canadians under the age of 40

~Approximately 1.5 million Canadians live with the effects of an acquired brain injury

~The annual incidences of ABI are greater than that of Multiple Sclerosis, spinal cord injury,
HIV/AIDS and breast cancer combined

 

The mission of Brain Injury Canada is to enhance the quality of life of individuals and families/caregivers living with brain injury in Canada.  The Board, Staff and volunteers of Brain Injury Canada are dedicated to facilitating post-trauma research, education, awareness and advocacy in partnership with national, provincial/territorial and regional associations and other stakeholders.

We will confirm the conference program as soon as possible.
