I have an invisible injury.

Brain injury is a silent epidemic.

Help us give it a voice.

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.

Our Story

In 1986, the beginnings of BrainTrust Canada took shape under the direction of a small group of committed people who recognized a need for greater support and resources for those affected by brain injury.  

Our Mission

It's our mission 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 injuries, especially among youth.

Our Commitment

The needs of those with brain injury are as varied and unique as the people themselves.  We do 'whatever it takes' to provide services that help people live full lives following brain injury.

Our Focus

PREVENTION

30%  of all traumatic brain injuries are sustained by children and youth.  Here at BrainTrust Canada we're proud of the programs we've created that focus on preventing brain injuries in our young people.

Our Helmet Safety Program, School Presentations, participation in the P.A.R.T.Y. (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-related Trauma in Youth) Program held at Kelowna General Hospital, Concussion Management Information Cards, and our award-winning Protect Your Head program all serve to create positive changes in youth that will help safeguard their future.

A Silent Epidemic

Statistics tell us that the incidence of brain injury is reaching epidemic proportions. Funding, resources, awareness, and research are not keeping pace with those rates.  

People with brain injury are often overlooked because their injury is not visible.  And yet, it has changed their very identity.

We're working to give a voice to brain injury.
