Parachute Safe Kids Week is an annual campaign to raise public awareness of child safety issues in Canada, encouraging community involvement as part of the solution. This year, Safe Kids Week focused on preventing harm from children’s falls in the home and at play.

We partnered with Hydro One as our Ontario sponsor for Safe Kids Week 2019 and provided enhanced resource toolkits for 100 Ontario Safe Kids Week partners. Additional toolkits were available for sale to interested communities across Canada.

This video gives best tips for preventing serious falls and injuries to your children in your home.

While the official week is over for 2019, we encourage Canadians to continue to join the discussion on social media by following us @ParachuteCanada on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and using the hashtags #FallProofYourHome and #SKW2019 to spread our message widely. And you are welcome to continue using the resources below.
