Shine a Light on Preventable Injury 

Help support Canada’s 2nd annual National Injury Prevention Day. Share your photos of ladmarks lit “Parachute green” July 5, 2018 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.
