  • Providing relevant information to Thunder Bay District on how to prevent injury in a variety of settings.
  • Linking the public to general injury prevention information from trusted sources
  • Operating or partnering with other community organizations to offer programs and campaigns related to injury prevention
  • Providing a public health perspective for government or organizations creating new policies as they relate to injury prevention.
