BrainTrust Canada is an Okanagan-based, non-profit organization founded in 1986. Its mission is to bring the issue of brain injury to the forefront, maximize the potential of those who have been affected by brain injury, and reduce preventable brain injury, especially among youth. To that end, services are focused on three strands related to brain injury – Education, Prevention, and Support. The association offers a variety of services and programs in all three areas.
Partner Paul Mitchell is a Founding Director of BrainTrust Canada, and we sponsor the annual Pushor Mitchell Symposium on Brain Injury, a dynamic learning event for professionals, support workers, caregivers, families, and persons living with brain injury.
Pushor Mitchell LLP is an organization with a rare and impressive sense of corporate social responsibility. For over three decades, Paul Mitchell, Q.C. and his team have rallied around our charitable cause, ensuring that brain injury is 'front of mind' in the community as a significant social and health issue. Through their support of the organization from the very inception of the society, to their ongoing commitment to provide board leadership, to title sponsorship of the Pushor Mitchell Okanagan Conference on Brain Injury - Paul and his team, continue to offer strong collaborative support in our efforts to improve the lives of the people we serve and to reduce preventable brain injuries through education and awareness. We are grateful to work with Paul Mitchell, Q.C. and his team at Pushor Mitchell LLP, and we are honoured to call him our friend.Mona Hennenfent, CEOBrainTrust Canada
