Prince George Brain Injured Group Society
The Prince George Brain Injured Group Society is a non-profit society, incorporated in 1987. Ours is the largest and most comprehensive agency of our type in the province.
Membership in the society is open to the general public and is available through the offices of the Society. Individuals do not need to be registered members of the society in order to receive services.
PG BIG is a member agency of the Prince George United Way and is an active member of the Prince George community.
PG Brain Injured Group provides a comprehensive range of services and supports to survivors and family members. These include case management, classes and support groups, employment services, social opportunities, one to one contracted rehabilitation, residential services and individual and group services for families. In 2010 PG BIG served 321 survivors of brain injury.
PG BIG also provides a range of injury prevention programs in local schools and throughout our community.
We have an excellent reputation throughout the province. Staff and survivors have presented at many conferences on brain injury and we are very active in the newly formed Northern Brain Injury Community Society, a society whose primary objective is the development of services for survivors of brain injury throughout thee northern half of the province.
We are a preferred practicum placement for the Social Work degree programme at UNBC and for three diploma programmes at the College of New Caledonia, including the Long Term Care, the Social Service Worker and the Practical Nursing programmes.
The Brain Injury Rehab Centre is open Monday to Friday 9 AM - 5 PM.
