The Brain Injury Association of Peel and Halton – BIAPH – was founded in 1986 by parents, spouses, and service providers of individuals suffering the effects of an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) 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 continues with its original mission of advocacy, support, community awareness and education.
The association is made up of a volunteer board of directors who commit time and energy to facilitate the various services provided. We provide information on services and resources to our members either by telephone or in person at monthly meetings.
BIAPH is a proud affiliate of the Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA). Under the umbrella of OBIA we connect with other brain injury associations across Ontario. Headed by OBIA, these Ontario associations are united through the OBIA Advisory Council (OAC) that meets five times each year. Each regional association appoints two representatives to the OAC. The meetings enable the associations to share current ideas, research, educational materials, trends, and fundraising initiatives.
