Your hosts, Parachute, the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit (BCIRPU), and the BC Centre for Disease Control invite you to take part in the Canadian Injury Prevention Conference from November 2 to 4, 2022.

Where is the conference being held? This year’s conference will take place at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel in Vancouver, BC. We intend to hold this conference in person, and we will be closely monitoring public health guidelines.

Who should attend? All who play a role in the injury prevention field including public health, researchers, policy makers, Indigenous peoples, front-line community and social workers, first responders, and those working with priority and under-served populations are welcome to attend.

What topics will the conference cover? Topics will include injuries across the unintentional and inflicted spectrums including traffic, drowning, falls, fire, violence, suicide, and more. In lieu of a full Canadian Fall Prevention Conference, this event will have a focused program stream on fall prevention.
