Cost of Injury in Canada
Parachute’s Cost of Injury in Canada report, published in 2015, quantifies the financial and societal burden on our citizens, our health care system and the Canadian economy.
Parachute advocates for policies and regulations to reduce serious injury and death. Current focuses: booster seats, carbon monoxide alarms, concussion, cycling helmets, driving speed, off-highway vehicles, poison, and pool fencing.
Review current injury reports, recommended journals, systematic reviews, and other publications related to injury prevention.
These interactive data visualization tools and online portals, including the Canadian Atlas of Child & Youth Injury Prevention, will help you better understand statistics and information on injury.
Training and webinars
Parachute and our partners offer injury-training programs in areas such as concussion recognition and management, fall prevention, road safety and child safety. We also run professional development webinars related to injury prevention.
