2016 Showcase


BCBIA Showcase & Celebration for Brain Injury!
Showcasing Excellent Services in British Columbia

We had a very successful evening at the BCBIA Showcase & Celebration for Brain Injury event, which showcased ten excellent Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) service providers, a silent auction and inspiring videos.

The ten service providers exhibiting at the event, held on March 3rd at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel, were identified through the ABI Provincial Services Evaluation Initiative. Representatives from different parts of the province showcased their projects and provided information and resources to participants who also watched a video highlighting the excellent services they provide. Missed it?  Watch the video here.

Find out more about the service providers and check out more photos of the fun.
