Vancouver Brain Injury Association’s mission is to fill a devastating void for Vancouver and North Shore brain injury survivors by investigating the program needs of the Vancouver and North Shore brain injury community and providing those programs that are currently unavailable.

Vancouver Brain Injury Association’s mission is also to connect brain injury survivors, their families and caregivers to  resources that are available by liaising with community and government organizations, and introducing them to our clients.

Our mandate is:

  • To serve as an advocate for brain injury survivors’ individual needs and concerns to the best of our abilities and resources.
  • To investigate the program needs of the Vancouver and North Shore brain injury community and provide those programs that are currently unavailable.
  • To provide a venue through which members of the public may contribute to the support of brain injury survivors and their caregivers.
  • To assist and support brain injury survivors in reaching appropriate agencies and support.
  • To use Trauma Informed Practices (TIP) in our society and to provide access to Trauma Informed Practices training to other agencies.
  • To support inclusion and to not discriminate on the basis of factors including but not limited to gender, race, religion, socioeconomic status, physical or cognitive abilities, age, sexual orientation, or ethnicity.
