A Great Big Thank You to everyone who participated in the 2017 Brain Injury Awareness Day!

Another successful Brain Injury Awareness Day is in the books! Positive reviews were received for the 2017 group of speakers and presenters. Some heartfelt thanks goes out to all those who participated in making the event a great success. This was our first year at our new venue; The St. Elias Centre, with over 230 attendees.

The phenomenal success of Brain Injury Awareness Day is only possible due to the dedication and enthusiasm of our many Sponsors. Their ongoing support for this event continues to allow us to offer this incredible educational opportunity to the members of the community, free of charge. Thank you to all our sponsors, we couldn’t do it without you!

Mark your calendar for our 10th Annual Brain Injury Awareness Day which will be held on Wednesday June 13, 2018 at the St. Elias Centre. We look forward to seeing you then.

Event Overview

Brain Injury Awareness Day continues to offer a unique and valuable opportunity for survivors, family members, health care and legal professionals to spend a day together to learn, network and refresh their commitment to maximize the quality of life of those affected by brain injury. Through the continued generous support of our sponsors, this conference has been offered at no charge to delegates and visitors. Each year, more than 200 attend.

Brain Injury Awareness Day will be held at the St. Elias Centre, on Ridgewood Avenue again this year after overwhelming positive comments from 2017!
