Community Support Network

For people living with Acquired Brain Injury

BIAN is one of many community Brain Injury Associations in the province of Ontario. All local Brain Injury Associations are autonomous, but are linked to OBIA through various shared agreement, including Peer Support Mentoring Program, ABI Directory of Services, Biennial Provincial Conference, and Dual Membership. Each local Brain Injury Association sends two members to the OBIA Advisory Council which meets four to five times per year.
