With funding from the Law Foundation of Ontario, BIST launched www.abijustice.org, the first and currently the only resource in Ontario that aims to decrease common barriers that become present for persons with brain injury when faced with legal matters.

Through simplified terms and brief education of the legal system and supporting resources; ABI Justice is a porthole for legal information as it pertains to those who have sustained or those who assist clients who live with a brain injury.
