Brain Injury

Brain Canada is engaging people with lived experience to set the research agenda for solutions to key issues such as traumatic brain injury. We’re working to support our funded researchers in designing their projects to achieve maximum impact. And we’re filling gaps in the early stages of the clinical research pathway with partners who know how to bring ideas to market.

Have your voice heard! We invite you to participate in an online survey on the needs of people with traumatic brain injury (TBI). This survey is open for 8 weeks, from now until Sunday May 28th, 2023. We encourage anyone with a perspective on TBI to take part and provide their input. This survey is part of our current stakeholder consultation exercise, and will be part of the learnings which will inform future funding opportunities in TBI research, so your input is critical.
