The BC Brain Injury Association (BCBIA) Celebrates 40 Years of Service & Forms a Strategic Alliance with the CGB Centre for Traumatic Life Losses
Brainstreams.ca is the official website of the BC Brain Injury Association (BCBIA). We are excited to announce fourty years of service in British Columbia. BCBIA was founded in 1982 and incorporated in 1983.
Throughout the years, BCBIA has been the voice of the brain injury community, evolving from providing direct services to joining forces with the Pacific Coast Brain Injury Conference Society (PCBICS) in 2012, to becoming the provincial resource for online education and networking through Brainstreams.ca.
BCBIA is evolving again. We have formalized a Strategic Alliance with the Constable Gerald Breese Centre for Traumatic Life Losses (CGB) under the leadership of Janelle Breese Biagioni.
For more information on our milestone and the newly formed alliance, check out our blog.
The Journey Ahead
We are pleased to announce a new section of Brainstreams called The Journey Ahead. This project was generously funded by ICBC.
This section is for survivors, family members, friends, and caregivers to learn about brain injury, what it entails, to find suitable and appropriate supports, and to provide information about additional services, funding sources, and other community resources.
Please check out The Journey Ahead and let us know what you think.
ICBC Coverage Concerns Regarding The Enhanced Care Model
The Cridge Centre for the Family Brain Injury Program and the BC Brain Injury Association is most concerned in regard to the issues raised in this article. Innocent crash victims must be fully protected and compensated by ICBC and its Enhanced Care Model. The BCBIA will be bringing this story forward to appropriate authorities at ICBC and those others concerned about the Enhanced Care Model.
Should you or those within your network experience similar, perceived unfair treatment or support from the ICBC Enhanced Care Model, please let us know. Send concerns or issues to: Geoff Sing care of - firstname.lastname@example.org.
