Parachute Leaders in Injury Prevention

Every day 43 Canadians die because of preventable injuries.

These kind of injuries take a staggering toll on children, seniors, families and communities across our country. The financial costs are rising and unsustainable: $27 billion is lost to the economy annually. The human costs are catastrophic: 16,000 Canadians die each year.

We believe this needs to change. Our aim is an injury-free Canada.

This Giving Tuesday we want Canadians to change these statistics. We want everyone in the country to invest in the safety of their friends and family.

It's time to be a real #BFF and #StoptheClock on preventable injury.
