About Brain Injury
Approximately 1.5 million people in Canada are living with a brain injury. The incidence of acquired brain injury outnumbers breast cancer, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and HIV/AIDS combined. It has been called a 'silent epidemic'.
The numbers are growing, yet brain injury continues to be misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and often unrecognized. The cost to individuals, families, their communities, and the nation as a whole is staggering, both personally and financially.
Our mission is to bring the issue of brain injury to the forefront, maximize the potential of those who have been affected by brain injury, and reduce preventable brain injury, especially among youth.
Someone you know has a brain injury.We can help. You can, too.
