The Injury Prevention Centre (IPC) is a provincial organization that focuses on reducing catastrophic injury and death in Alberta. We act as a catalyst for action by supporting communities and decision-makers with knowledge and tools. We raise awareness about preventable injuries as an important component of life-long health and wellness.

Our current priorities focus on increasing awareness about preventable injuries along with reducing the incidence and severity of injuries that are common in Alberta, including falls, self-harm and suicide, poisoning and motor vehicle-related injuries. We also work to reduce the impact of catastrophic injury on vulnerable populations, such as children, youth and rural & remote populations.

The Centre staff consists of researchers, data analysts, program coordinators, educators and communicators who work with partners across Alberta to control injury.

The Vision: Albertans work and play hard, free from life-limiting injuries.

The Mission: The Injury Prevention Centre will lead the reduction of catastrophic injuries and deaths in Alberta. We will be a catalyst for action by supporting communities and decision-makers with knowledge and tools. We will raise the profile of preventing injuries as an important component of life-long health and wellness.

How We Work:

  • Collaborate with communities, partners and supporters from multiple sectors.
  • Synthesize knowledge from a variety of sources.
  • Use data to set priorities.
  • Acknowledge the importance of balancing research with context.
  • Recognize the complexity of factors that contribute to injury.
  • Provide resources for action.

We invite you to work with us to create an injury-free Alberta by reducing the toll injuries take in our province.
