The Alberta Brain Injury Initiative (ABII) was launched in 2000 to support adults with acquired brain injury to live, work and participate in their communities.

ABII is a network of agencies across the province that assists survivors and their families in accessing supports from various programs and community resources.

The goal of the 2017-18 Learning Series is intended to help individuals, families and agencies access information and resources about brain injury to aide in the process of recovery and coping with the effects of living with acquired brain injury.
