Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation

Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation

A catalyst for change

For over 23 years the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation has worked to advance research, knowledge mobilization and implementation initiatives to prevent neurotrauma injuries and improve the lives of Ontarians with acquired brain injury and spinal cord injury. While the Foundation will wind-down effective March 31, 2021, the work will be sustained by partnering groups through funding from the Ontario Ministry of Health.



Research helps to identify needs and gaps in practice, service or policy – these ongoing discoveries and advances lead to evidence-based solutions.

Knowledge Mobilization

Knowledge mobilization translates research into informed practices through the development of guidelines, standards, toolkits and knowledge-sharing platforms.


Implementation ensures evidence-informed care solutions are integrated into health care systems to improve outcomes.
