Our History

The Hamilton Brain Injury Association known in the community as “HBIA”, is a registered charitable organization that was developed to provide support to survivors of acquired brain injury. HBIA has been supporting ABI in Hamilton since 1986.

     HBIA proudly offers several Support Groups and Clubs that occur weekly and monthly to individuals living with the effects of acquired brain injury, unpaid caregivers, family members and spouses. Each group provides a non-intrusive and compassionate atmosphere for individuals to gain support. Through this environment the doors are opened to discover and share helpful resources, techniques, strategies, coping suggestions, and most of all, open understanding ears to listen and support.

     The Hamilton Brain Injury Association creates opportunities to increase awareness and advocate for individuals who have an acquired brain injury. HBIA happily operates a volunteer-run educational injury prevention program. HBIA creates awareness of ABI, including concussion through our school program, Bikes, Blades and Boards.
