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.
Canadians are facing an unusual situation, and there’s a lot of news and information being shared about the novel coronavirus COVID-19. We’ve created a basic guide that tells you what it is and what you can do to help minimize the spread.
We’ve also created a list of activities that can help you beat boredom while we all practice social distancing.
Mental health is important, especially during times of increased isolation. We’ve created this guide with tips on how to support your mental health and the well-being of others.
After careful consideration of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the conference originally scheduled in April to September 23-25, 2020. The health and safety of all our attendees and speakers is of the upmost importance. This is uncharted territory and we want to proceed with an event that people can feel secure in booking and attending. We will confirm the conference program as soon as possible.
Registration for the 2020 Brain Injury Canada National Conference is open. Conference passes include access to exhibitors, dynamic presentations, and food.
New this year – workshops
On September 23, some of our exceptional speakers will be running workshops. These small groups are a great way to learn from experts in the field and actively participate in dialogue and activities.
We understand how challenging it can be trying to navigate the process of returning to work after an acquired brain injury.
With this new workbook, you’ll have the tools you need to work with your employer and return to work when you’re ready.
