Shine a Light on Preventable Injury

Help support Canada’s 3rd annual National Injury Prevention Day. Share your photos of landmarks lit “Parachute green” on July 5, 2019 and join the conversation on social media using #ParachuteNIPD. Help us work toward the goal of a Canada free of serious injuries.

Preventable injury, which includes on the road, at home, and at play, accounts for 16, 000 deaths every year in Canada.
