Our Mission

Every day 43 Canadians die because of preventable injuries.

These kind of injuries take a staggering toll on children, seniors, families and communities across our country. The financial costs are rising and unsustainable: $27 billion is lost to the economy annually. The human costs are catastrophic: 16,000 Canadians die each year.

We believe this needs to change. Our aim is an injury-free Canada.

Parachute helps Canadians reduce their risks of injury while enjoying long lives lived to the fullest.

As an organization, we help:

  • Inspire and mobilize Canadians to create a cultural shift to help prevent injuries and save lives, with the resulting human, social and economic benefits.
  • Families and communities protect our children and to build risk and life-management skills to support the transition of young people into productive citizens.
  • Working Canadians maintain active, healthy and full lives well into retirement.
