Governor General of Canada
Message from the Governor General Le Gouverneur Générale

I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to all brain injury survivors, caregivers and volunteers on the occasion of Brain Injury Awareness Month.

The courage and determination of those suffering from brain injuries and those who are helping to alleviate symptoms and to foster healing is truly admirable. Through neurological research and support of affected individuals and families, we can improve the quality of life of brain injury survivors.

I encourage all Canadians to learn about the causes, effects and means of preventing brain injuries, and to offer their support to survivors and family members whose courage is truly inspiring.
