Every 3 minutes, one person in Canada acquires a brain injury.

As cited by Brain Injury Canada from Langois et al., (2006). 

At the Victoria Brain Injury Society, we are dedicated to fight this statistic. We are driven by a relentless determination to make a tangible difference in the lives of those affected.

Happy Birthday VBIS!

2023 marks the 40th anniversary of the Victoria Brain Injury Society. Join us in celebrating the 4 decades of impact – we couldn’t do it without you.

Spreading light on intimate partner violence.

92% of intimate partner violence involve a blow to the head, face, and/or neck.

Yet, there is a lack of focus given to the victims of IPV and brain injury.

Advocacy with impact.

We strive to eliminate the stigma faced by survivors, enabling a better, more empathetic future for those impacted by concussion and brain injury.

Education that empowers.

We offer free educational courses for survivors, friends, family & the community to help build a better collective understanding of concussion and brain injury.

Support you can count on.

We help people navigate the complexities of concussion & brain injury through individual support and numerous group programs. You don’t have to do it alone.

We believe in a better future for brain injury survivors.

Our mission is to support, educate, advocate and provide housing assistance for brain injury survivors and their families. In doing so, we strive to increase community awareness about brain injuries and reduce the harmful stigma experienced by survivors.

Acquired brain injury (ABI) results from damage to the brain that occurs after birth – and no two injuries are alike. To meet the diverse needs of our community, we offer individual support, peer support, family support, and various group programs.

We assist people who’ve experienced concussions, strokes, aneurysms, and countless other types of ABI. We’re here to help you recover, adapt, and adjust; regain independence; and develop a secure sense of community. At VBIS, there are people who get it. You’re not alone.


"Thank you for being there when I needed you most"
