Safe Kids Canada partnered with the European Child Safety Alliance to adapt the 2006 European Child Safety Good Practice Guide to create the ‘Child Safety Good Practice Guide: Good Investments in unintentional child injury prevention and safety promotion – Canadian Edition”. This is the first seminal, comprehensive document in the country from which decision-makers, practitioners and legislators can base their work and recommendations. This resource was designed to “enable Canadian injury prevention practitioners to examine Canadian strategy options for unintentional child injury, move away from what has ‘always been done’ and move toward good investments – strategies that are known to work or have the greatest probability of success”.
