Injury Free Nova Scotia is a provincial non-profit, established in 2006, committed to eliminating serious and preventable injuries in Nova Scotia.
With the top three injury and injury-related death issues for our province being motor vehicle collisions, falls, and suicide/suicide attempts, we acknowledge the challenge of such a broad focus. Doing this work well requires working respectfully together with diverse groups within the realm of health and beyond.
We see our role as that of a positive change agent - helping to build healthy public policy that will lessen injuries and disability, and save lives. We also see a role in bringing people together to inform, engage and mobilize them towards positive change.
