Our history

Intentional and unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death for people aged one to forty-four years of age. Most of the injuries are both predictable and preventable.

Sunnybrook Centre for Injury Prevention was established in 1986 within Sunnybrook’s Trauma, Emergency and Critical Care department.  The office aims to prevent traumatic injuries and injury related mortality across all ages through community education, collaboration and awareness. We empower generations to take better care of themselves and those around them. It comes down to making better choices about the risks we take. We simply ask you to Think it Thru.

This centre delivers multiple programs and resources both independently as well as with an extensive team of collaborators.  We currently deliver the P.A.R.T.Y. Program, work to highlight issues of pedestrian safety through iNavigait and work collaboratively with community partners through the Toronto Area Safety Coalition.
