Parachute provides evidence-based information on a range of topics, including head injury and concussion, sports and recreational injuries, road safety, poison prevention and other areas of injury prevention affecting children, teens and adults.
Concussion and Brain Injury
Parachute has many programs and resources focusing on concussion and brain injury. We want parents, educators and students to understand how they can help prevent serious head injury.
Road Safety is paramount and that’s why Parachute believes in the multi-national traffic safety initiative, Vision Zero where the main goal is zero fatalities and serious road injuries.
Child and Teen Safety
Parachute champions a number of safety initiatives for young children and teens, including Safe Kids Week and National Teen Driver Safety Week.
About one in three people over the age of 65 is likely to fall at least once every year. Parachute wants to help implement fall prevention strategies as our Canadian population ages.
