About Us

Brain Injury Canada (The Brain Injury Association of Canada) was formed in 2002 after a groundswell of advocacy and national activity by local brain injury associations, survivors and caregivers across the country.

All agreed that the movement needed a national voice and national facilitator to connect and support the movement across Canada.

The mission of Brain Injury Canada is to improve the quality of life for those living with a brain injury and their families/caregivers.

To fulfill our mission, the Board of Directors, Executive Director, and our Volunteers work in 7 key strategic areas:

  1. Promote greater awareness of ABI and the need for early detection and treatment.
  2. Create new opportunities to put prevention awareness near the top of Canada’s public agenda.
  3. Promote increased research funding towards important areas identified by our stakeholders.
  4. Promote increased funding and access to services for residential care and day programming services.
  5. Address the serious regional disparity across the country for access to services.
  6. Improve the ability of ABI survivors and care givers to navigate the care and advocacy system.
  7. Support and facilitate the development of local and regional brain injury associations in their efforts to provide a voice for ABI survivors and caregivers.
