Your MP has received a Briefing Note
Prior to our delegation arriving in Ottawa, over 300 MPs were sent our Briefing Note on the National Strategy on Brain Injury (Bill C-277) to over 300 MPs.
The briefing note is a short document that provides essential information, including the current situation of brain injury in Canada, the impact of chasms in care survivors and families are facing, and recommendations. It serves as a tool to inform decision-makers, offering a quick yet comprehensive overview of the topic at hand.
When speaking to, or emailing your Member of Parliament, please provide a copy of both the Briefing Note_ National Strategy on Brain Injury_October 16 2023 and Bill C-277.
