Child Safety Link is pleased to have our organization listed as an official endorser."

- Sandra Newton, Manager Child Safety Link

 

"With summer just around the corner, Safe Kids Week is the perfect opportunity to remind children of all ages about the importance of safety at home, at play and on the road. The health and safety of families is a priority for the Government of Canada, and I would like to thank Parachute Canada for its continuous efforts to keep our kids safe. During Safe Kids Week, I encourage parents to sit down with their kids and discuss how they can avoid injury while they are having fun this summer."

- The Honourable Jane Philpott MP, Minister of Health

 

“Our goal is to ensure kids have access to education and information that helps them get back to what they need, want and love to do following concussion. Parachute’s Safe Kids Week raises the volume on a very important issue. We need to keep kids safe, not exclusively during sports or activities, but during everyday life as well.”

- Nick Reed, co-director of Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital’s concussion centre
