About The Network

The Toronto Acquired Brain Injury Network is a recognized leader and collective voice in acquired brain injury (ABI). We bring together providers from across the health care and social services continuum to improve the quality and accessibility of publicly-funded service for individuals affected by ABI.

We connect people to services by:

  • Overseeing and reporting on referral activity for all inpatient ABI rehabilitation programs in Toronto to ensure timely and equitable access to services.
  • Providing information and a single point of entry to community-based services: outpatient ABI rehabilitation, mental health services and community services (e.g., recreational, vocational and supportive housing programs.) Physicians, health care professionals and social service providers can make one referral and the Network will coordinate multiple referrals on the client’s behalf.
  • Problem solving to help individuals with complex needs access the services they require.
  • Providing information and support to individuals with ABI and their families to help them find and access health care and social service system.

We build capacity within the system by:

  • Improving system-level planning and access to services by identifying and addressing issues that limit access and impede smooth transitions.
  • Providing education for health care professionals, physicians and community service providers to increase their ability to recognize, assess and support people with ABI.
  • Hosting a national bi-annual conference and other events to support the sharing and integration of best practices and new research into practice.

We provide a strong collective voice for ABI by:

  • Advocating for accessible, high quality, publicly-funded services for individuals affected by ABI.

Our Mission:

To provide leadership in furthering equitable, accessible, responsive, cost-effective and quality publicly-funded services and support for persons living with the effects of an acquired brain injury in the Greater Toronto Area.
