The Nanaimo Brain Injury Society is a registered non profit society and registered charitable organization. We are a progressive society providing support, education and connection for people living with brain injury since 1988. Energetic and dedicated, our society members, volunteers, Board of Directors and Staff give the society a firm foundation on which we build positive relationships with clients, family members and our wider community. Together we strive to uphold NBIS's Vision, Mission & Values.
We believe that individuals with disabilities reflect the normal diversity of the human community. Our experience teaches us that most people wish to continue being part of their community following brain injury, and we take seriously the idea of fostering independence and self-determination. Through our programs and services, people with acquired brain injuries can go on to enjoy fuller inclusion and participation in the community, which includes becoming local advocates for understanding brain injury and its prevention.
