The Ontario Brain Injury Association has been publishing a Directory of ABI Services since 1992. The original binder format contained more than 350 listings of various services ranging from Legal Services to Long Term Care. Although the Directory was useful in its time, the production was very cumbersome and the ‘binder’ format was outdated.
In 2007, with the exclusive support of Gluckstein Lawyers and Henderson Structured Settlements Inc., the new Online Directory of ABI Services was developed. In January of 2008, the online directory was launched. The cost to list in the Online Directory of ABI Services has remained the same as the old paper version; however, the benefits to listing online have increased to allow for a much larger program description, links to your company website and email, the addition of your company logo and various ways to search the website. There is also an added feature of ‘Enhancing’ your company listing, which translates into showing your company in the top 10 results of a search.
The revenues earned through the Online Directory of ABI Services are used to support the services of both OBIA and the local Brain Injury Associations that participate with 60% of the net revenues going to support the local participating associations.
Your participation in the Online Directory of Services helps support the work of the Ontario Brain Injury Association and that of your local association.
