Knowledge. Leadership. Action.
Our Vision: Albertans work and play hard, free from life-limiting injuries.
Our 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.
