In 1986, BIAPH was founded to support individuals living with an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).
Parents, spouses, and services providers saw a need for additional support, and came together to create BIAPH. These advocates were the driving force in the repatriation movement; an initiative that brought Ontarians receiving ABI services in the United States back to Ontario and to their families.
BIAPH advocates on behalf of our members, and provides information to survivors of ABI, their families, and support networks. We also facilitate measures to promote the prevention of brain injury, improve quality/care of life, provide community education, and conduct resource searches on behalf of our members.
Is to enhance the quality of life for persons in the region(s) of Peel and Halton who are living with the effects of an acquired brain injury through:
Education, Awareness and Support
Weekly meetings open to adult ABI survivors and their caregivers.
Monthly meetings held exclusively for caregivers of ABI survivors.
We envision BIAPH as a gateway for:
Resources, Prevention, Leadership, Support, and Inclusive Programs
