RBC First Office for Injury Prevention


An active life, injury free


Reducing intentional and unintentional injuries and injury-related death through collaboration, advocacy, research and education

Intentional and unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death for people aged 1-44 years of age and truly are a silent epidemic in Canada.

The RBC First Office for Injury Prevention, established in 1986 within Sunnybrook's Trauma, Emergency and Critical Care (TECC) Program, aims to prevent traumatic injuries and injury-related mortality across all ages through community education, collaboration, research and innovation.

The RBC First Office for Injury Prevention provides community, provincial, national and international leadership in injury prevention. Our office delivers multiple programs and resources independently as well as with an extensive team of collaborators.

Sunnybrook has been a pioneer in this area and in the development of a permanent office for injury prevention onsite.
