National Injury Prevention Day (NIPD) spreads the message about the importance of injury prevention across Canada. We share messages on the importance of injury prevention and encourage our partners and supporters to do the same, tagging their social media posts with the hashtags #ParachuteNIPD and #TurnSafetyOn.

In 2020 we had more than 4.4 social media impressions with posts and shares on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and TikTok.
