The affiliated associations’ main purposes are to provide a stronger voice for people living with acquired brain injury and to develop and produce province-wide programs. To date, those programs include: Peer Support Program; ABI Directory of Services and Provincial Conference.

OBIA and its affiliates feel strongly that together we can work more effectively in improving the quality of life for those affected by acquired brain injury, and that we can only be as strong as our affiliates.
