BIASD is a community association dedicated to supporting ABI survivors and their family members. Our members are children, parents, teens, spouses, and grandparents. Membership is open to anyone in the community with an interest in the challenges that come with living with the effects of brain injury. Professionals and service providers are also welcome as members of BIASD.
Volunteers are essential to the effective functioning of BIASD. They are board and committee members, office and library help, support group leaders, fundraisers, newsletter circulation workers or presenters at public events.
BIASD, incorporated in 1995 and registered as a charity in 1995, is governed by a board of directors. It derives its primary income from fundraising events, an annual golf tournament, donations, advertising and membership fees. It is in good standing with the Canada Revenue Agency. BIASD also maintains affiliation status with the Ontario Brain Injury Association.
