May 30 to June 5 – 2016 is the 20th Anniversary for Parachute’s Safe Kids Week.
Many Canadians are surprised to learn that preventable injuries kill more children every year than any other disease.
The good news is that prevention efforts are working – since 1996, Canada has enjoyed a decreasing trend in death and hospitalizations from preventable injuries overall.
But there is a still lot of work to do to keep children, and ourselves safe. Plan to take part in Parachute’s Safe Kids Week, happening May 30 – June 5, 2016 with a focus on the top injury issues that affect children on the road, at home and at play.
Safe Kids Week was originally a program of Parachute’s legacy organization Safe Kids Canada. The first annual Safe Kids Week took place in 1996.
May 30 to June 5
