Safe Communities Canada becomes part of brave new voice in injury prevention

Posted by Carrie McIntosh on Friday, July 13th, 2012

As long time leaders in the promotion of safety and injury prevention in Canada, we are pleased to announce our amalgamation with Safe Kids Canada, SMARTRISK and ThinkFirst into a new national organization to be known as:  Parachute - Leaders in injury prevention.

As a single organization, we will provide a strengthened voice, sustainable programs and national reach for injury prevention awareness and expertise appropriate to Canadians of all ages. Our new organization will be the strategic injury prevention partner for families, communities, the health sector, researchers, governments and business, with a mandate to encompass all ages as well as intentional and unintentional injuries.

This decision is the result of collaborative efforts between Safe Communities Canada and its partners, and involved consultation at the community, provincial and national levels.

Parachute's first CEO will be Louise Logan, who is presently concluding her work as the Inaugural President & CEO of the Public Services Health & Safety Association. Louise has also held executive positions at WorkSafeBC and has a track record of significant accomplishment in the field of injury prevention. She will officially join Parachute in September.   

Safe Communities Canada will continue to manage and deliver its current programs and resources to the communities and partners. In the short-term, all contact information and websites for each of the four amalgamating organizations will remain the same. You will be informed when these change and our website visitors will be redirected to the landing page of the new organization, once it becomes fully active.

Thank you for all of your support over the last sixteen years and we look forward to continuing to help Canadian families live safely.
