About Us

As the only organized voice for some 70,000 Nova Scotians affected by brain injury, we are committed to providing programs, education, recovery, support, advocacy, and community.

Brain injury survivors and their families look to us every day as a resource and touchstone of support across the spectrum of brain injury. Brain Injury Association of Nova Scotia has been a registered Canadian charity since 1988.


Fostering resilience, recovery, and community for brain injury survivors and their families across Nova Scotia.


Nova Scotians living with acquired brain injury and their families/caregivers realize their potential through a continuum of programs, services, and community supports throughout the province.
