At the Brain Injury Association of Peel and Halton, We Serve the Needs of Survivors of Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) and their Families

Our Story

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.

Support Our Programs

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have witnessed an increased need for social support across our community. In response, BIAPH is seeking to expand our support programs to reach more brain injury survivors and families. With your support, you’re helping us establish accessible support systems, where we can continue to make a difference in the lives of the families we serve.

Our Mission

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:

What People Say About Us

The respite caregiver knows his abilities and weaknesses. He is prone to be very, very quiet and she draws him out and makes him speak. She is a gentle and kind person who brings him some socializing that he otherwise would not have. The program has exceeded our expectations. The respite caregiver is a gem and we have come to love her!
Caregiver Relief Program, Recipient
I have really enjoyed people sharing their stories and hearing the speakers present. There have been some very informative speakers. Just listening to others helps me not feel alone and connected to others, you feel like somebody else understands what you're going through. For those thinking about attending a group I would say come with an open mind and expect to receive something good. It doesn't matter where the group is, there's always something good.
Adult Support Group, Member
Having a local support group (BIAPH), helped me a lot during my recovery. It has been great to meet other survivors that can relate to you and understand you and your situation. I made a whole new group of friends. I had wonderful experiences finally connecting with other survivors. The local support groups helped me share some of my challenges and learn from others.
Youth and Young Adult Support Group, Member
By having my husband be able to take back his previous responsibility of the weekly grocery shopping (with the assistance of a respite caregiver), he has become more self-confident in himself and it makes him feel good that he is able to help out with the weekly household chores.
