Welcome to the official website of the BC Brain Injury Association. The BC Brain Injury Association (BCBIA) and the Pacific Coast Brain Injury Conference Society (PCBICS) have recently joined together to become one organization with a focused and clear purpose to support our province’s brain injury community.




Our mission is to be the agent of change providing leadership for developing, driving and implementing a provincial strategy in BC to improve the lives of people who live with acquired brain injury.


This coming year we will be focusing on the following priority outcomes:

  • People will have access to information on ABI
  • Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) will have a clear, distinct and recognized profile in BC
  • There will be a solid provincial stragtegy for ABI in BC
