Help Us Move Bill C-277 Forward

Developing a National Strategy for Brain Injury

Bill-C277 National Strategy on Brain injury for CanadaIn June 2022, Member of Parliament Alistair MacGregor introduced Private Members’ Bill C-277, calling for the establishment of a national strategy for brain injury. A national strategy for brain injury would mean more unification and greater commitments to building supports for people with brain injury and their families/caregivers.

A National Strategy on Brain Injury would focus the Minister of Health in consultation with representatives of the provincial governments responsible for health, Indigenous groups and relevant stakeholders (including individuals and families living with the effects of brain injury), to develop a national strategy to support and improve brain injury awareness, prevention and treatment as well as the rehabilitation and recovery of persons living with a brain injury.
