This document offers information and tools for injury prevention practitioners to raise the profile of injury prevention in Ontario and Canada.
Injuries are the leading cause of death for people within the ages of 1 and 44. On the other hand, there is evidence that injuries are preventable. This collaborative project came out of a need for consistent messaging in the province, as well as the need to involve all the relevant stakeholders in order to implement effective injury prevention initiatives. This successful collaboration was led by:
Northwestern Health Unit
Ontario Injury Prevention Resource Centre
Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation
Ontario Public Health Injury Prevention Managers' Alliance
The Regional Municipality of York
