The good news is that most injuries are preventable. Learn more about the issue of injury in Canada.

Injury rates in Canada are at epidemic proportions, with over 15,000 Canadians killed and another 230,000 hospitalized for serious injuries every year. In fact, on a typical day, 43 Canadians will die due to injury. Many of those who survive are left with disabilities, both physical and emotional. While these statistics are startling, injury prevention does not always get the attention it deserves.
By joining the No Regrets program you can be part of a national network of young Canadians working together to increase awareness of the issue of injury and teaching others how to manage risks in their daily lives.
You can lead the change in public perception that injuries are not “accidents”, but are predictable events that can be prevented.
The benefits that young Canadians will gain from participating in No Regrets within their school and community are numerous. Participants will learn firsthand the type of leadership skills required to empower their peers and inspire those around them to become advocates of injury prevention. No Regrets teams have the power to reduce the incidence of preventable injury across the board.
