Government of Canada

The University of British Columbia Okanagan has received $1M from the Government of Canada to further study and develop best practices for supporting traumatic brain injury in survivors of intimate partner violence. The announcement was part of a $50M funding announcement that will benefit nearly 60 projects in communities across the country. “We are thankful for the Government of Canada’s financial support of our research,” said UBCO Professor Paul van Donkelaar. “There are minimal resources currently available to survivors of intimate partner violence and the community service agencies that support them, in relation to traumatic brain injury, and we believe that our work will be important in helping to fill these unacceptable gaps.”
