The Foundation has supported programs such as the Partners in Pregnancy Clinic, Youth Sports Concussion Program.

ThinkFirst is a national non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of brain and spinal cord injuries. Celebrating over seventeen years in operation, ThinkFirst has been heightening public awareness through education since its inception in 1992, when it was founded by renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Charles Tator. Headquartered in Toronto, our endorsements include a number of prominent organizations including the Canadian Neurosurgical Society, the Canadian Association of Neuroscience Nurses, the Canadian Congress of Neurological Sciences, and the Canadian Spine Society.
Currently, there are nineteen local Chapters in every province across the country spreading the ThinkFirst injury prevention message. These chapters are managed by dedicated volunteers, some of whom are medical professionals, teachers, coaches, and injury survivors. By implementing ThinkFirst programs in their local communities, such as Brain Day and TD ThinkFirst for Kids program, our volunteers are raising awareness of the simple and effective ways to avoid devastating brain and spinal cord injuries. Without the generous support of our many volunteers, ThinkFirst’s goals could not be accomplished.
There are numerous opportunities for individuals to get involved and promote the ThinkFirst mission. Whether it be donating to our organization, volunteering time at a local chapter, or simply passing along materials available on the site to others, every effort to the cause is one step closer to diminishing the number of traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries in Canada.
