Parachute’s Vision

A Canada free of serious injuries… with Canadians living long lives to the fullest.

Parachute, a national Canadian charity founded in 2012, promotes researched, evidence-based and expert-advised resources and tools that can help to prevent serious harm or death from preventable injuries. Parachute wants Canadians from coast to coast to coast in this great nation to safely work, play, and enjoy their families and friends to the fullest throughout a long and healthy life.

Annually, predictable and preventable injuries in Canada result in:

  • 16,000 deaths
  • 231,000 hospital stays
  • 3.5 million visits to emergency rooms
  • 60,000-plus disabilities; and
  • $26.8 billion in total economic burden

Experts estimate that up to 90 per cent of serious injuries are predictable and preventable.
