About Us

The Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF) is the non-profit organization funded by the Ontario government that works to prevent neurotrauma, and to ensure Ontarians with neurotrauma lead full, productive lives.

ONF is the leader in moving research to evidence-informed practices that can prevent neurotrauma, and improve the quality of life and health outcomes for those living with neurotrauma.

ONF connects health care practitioners, researchers, stakeholders and policymakers to the information they need about neurotrauma prevention and health practices through regional, provincial, national and international collaborations and partnerships.

The Ontario Government has funded Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF) since 1998 and as a result has created and supported what has become an exceptional resource to government, industry, health research and the health care sector in Ontario, Canada and internationally. In particular ONF supports knowledge-sharing about research outcomes and evidence-informed practices in the areas of:

  1. Acquired brain injury (ABI)
  2. Spinal cord injury (SCI)
  3. Injury prevention
