Partners and Industry Associations
In 1987, a small group of individuals recognized the value of education and mutual support for those affected by a brain injury and established the Manitoba Brain Injury Association. This model of members helping members allowed MBIA to grow its services and prevention programs over the following years. Today, a Board of Directors comprising dedicated, respected community members governs the Association and we have over 400 members. Through our staff and volunteers, we now offer a variety of programs and services while holding true to the value of mutual support held by our founding members.

The diagnosis or the presence of the condition in and of itself is not what the government uses to determine eligibility for a disability benefit or credit. In order to make a decision, the government requires detailed information as to how the impairment effects activities of daily living or capacity to work. If you have one or more of the following conditions listed below, and are unsure as to whether or not you may be eligible for a disability program, contact us for a free consultation.
