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.

Register for the Brain Injury Canada National Conference

After careful consideration of the current state of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have once again made the decision to postpone the conference rescheduled for September to June 2-4, 2021.  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 program as soon as possible.

Registration for the Brain Injury Canada National Conference in 2021 is open. Conference passes include access to exhibitors, dynamic presentations, and food.
