Preventable injuries kill more Canadian children than any single disease, and more youth than all other causes combined.
Each year in Canada, preventable injuries cause:
and worst of all, 1 child dies every 9 hours.
Parachute is a charity helping Canadians stop the clock on predictable and preventable injuries.
Prevention is about education, knowledge and empowerment. Parachute is leading, inspiring and mobilizing Canadians of all ages. We are creating a movement and building awareness and understanding of the issue of injury, to keep Canadians safe at home, on the road, at work, and at play.
Unlike curing a deadly disease, the solutions are simple. We have the power. We have the knowledge. We have the resources. We have the vision.
Join Parachute and create an injury-free Canada.
Parachute’s injury prevention solutions, knowledge mobilization, public policy, and social awareness efforts are designed to help keep Canadians safe. Parachute’s vision is an injury-free Canada with Canadians living long lives to the fullest.
