Help us prevent injuries before they happen
Parachute is a national charity whose vision is a Canada free of serious injuries with Canadians living long lives to the fullest.
The cost of injury, both emotional and economical, is staggering. Preventable injuries are the No. 1 killer of children. They cost the Canadian economy $27 billion each year, and worst of all, one child dies every nine hours
Every day on average, 44 Canadians are killed and 164 Canadians sustain profound life-changing injuries. They need expensive medical services and support, and carry the burden for the rest of their lives of how their plans, dreams, and capabilities are forever altered. That’s 208 lives a day, nearly 76,000 every year. Each leaves family, friends, and colleagues wondering what they could have done to prevent it.
Parachute, through education and advocacy based on the latest and best research on injury prevention, is leading the charge to reduce preventable and predictable injuries. From campaigns such as National Teen Driver Safety Week to the development of the first Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport, we inform and persuade Canadians to move, live and play safely.
