Our 2018 annual report celebrates Parachute’s achievement in many fields of injury prevention, including our leadership in Vision Zero road safety, concussion recognition and treatment, falls in seniors and our achievements in our many programs, campaigns and advocacy work to create a Canada free of serious injuries, with Canadians living long lives to the fullest.
2017 President’s Report
In 2017, led by CEO and President Steve Podborski, Parachute published the Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport, held its second fundraising gala and second Vision Zero road safety summit, launched the first-ever National Injury Prevention Day on July 5, and launched its second strategic plan, Our Leap Forward, to shape the organization’s direction from 2018 to 2020.
2016 Annual Report
In 2016, Parachute continued its mission to create a Canada free of serious injury. We are grateful to our partners, stakeholders and generous funders who played an important role in our successful activities and program, including the launch of Concussion Ed app, the 20th anniversary of Parachute Safe Kid’s Week and a record-breaking response to National Teen Driver Safety Week. We invite you to read our 2016 Annual Report to learn about these initiatives and many more that are helping to stop the clock on preventable injuries.
2015 Annual Report
In 2015, Parachute called on all Canada to “Stop the Clock” on injury, a broad-reaching public awareness national campaign. Parachute hosted its first-ever fundraising gala, drawing support from Wayne Gretzky, Martin Short, and Jason Priestly. In addition to delivering our many programs and adding to our networks of communities and injury-prevention partners, Parachute published two major works: the landmark Cost of Injury Report and a new edition of the Canadian Injury Prevention Resource.
