Making Life Better

Association for the Rehabilitation of the Brain Injured (ARBI) is a community-based, charitable organization in Calgary, AB. Since 1978, ARBI has been recognized as a leader in community-based brain injury rehabilitation.

ARBI transforms the lives of individuals with acquired brain injury through a comprehensive rehabilitation and community integration process proven to be successful for brain injury and stroke survivors, and their support networks. We do this through our primary programs and services:

ON-SITE PROGRAM provides intensive neurorehabilitation therapy delivered by our multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals.

OUTREACH PROGRAM offers one-to-one assessment and treatment tailored for clients requiring intervention from only one discipline.

COMMUNITY INTEGRATION PROGRAM (CIP) offers group and one-to-one opportunities for engagement in meaningful community-based recreational pursuits.

CAREGIVER SUPPORT is provided to clients and their caregivers as they adjust to life after brain injury and reconnect with the community.


What began as a grassroots organization over 40 years ago has evolved into a modern, multifaceted, essential service for survivors of brain injuries and strokes. One thing that has remained the same all these years. That is the compassion, patience, and determination needed to overcome severe challenges and give hope to ARBI clients and their families.

Our dedicated and caring team of professionals’ sole focus is to make life better for individuals affected by brain injury or stroke.


Brain injuries don’t discriminate–they can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime. Approximately 1.5 million Canadians are living with an acquired brain injury and 5,000 Albertans will suffer a brain injury every year. The annual incidence of acquired brain injury is greater than that of multiple sclerosis (MS), spinal cord injury, HIV/AIDS, and breast cancer–combined!
