Parachute and the Electrical Safety Authority have paired up this fall to support communities across Ontario promote electrical safety in their regions and bring awareness to "Electrical Safety at Home". The goal of the campaign is to empower Parents/Caregivers with knowledge and resources and help keep children from electrical-related harm in their home.

The Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addicition has updated their Drug-Impaired Driving Toolkit to include key messages about impaired driving for people living in rural and remote areas. These messages are informed by discussions with the governments of the Yukon and the Northwest Territories.
In addition to the key messages, they have also added a new poster to our Toolkit. This poster can be downloaded to promote the message that impaired driving applies to all motorized vehicles, including boats and off-road vehicles.
