NHCC is asking the Government of Canada to immediately commit to developing a Canadian Action Plan for Brain Health to improve the lives of  the four million Canadians living with brain conditions and their families.NHCC has laid out a realistic roadmap to help reach this goal.

Details of the roadmap are in our brief to the Standing Committee on Finance: Helping Canada Prosper: Canadian Action Plan for Brain Health
