Evaluation of the Active and Safe Injury Prevention Initiative 2011-2012 to 2012-2013
The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the relevance and performance of the Active and Safe Injury Prevention Initiative. The timeframe of this evaluation was from April 1, 2011 (the date the initiative started) until March 31, 2013 (the date of its completion).
Program Description: The Initiative was a two-year $5 million initiative aimed at decreasing the incidence of sport and recreation-related injuries in children and youth (0-19 years) through improving community awareness and enhancing collaboration among injury prevention stakeholders. Initiative funding was distributed through contribution agreements to injury prevention and sports and recreation NGOs to deliver injury prevention projects across Canada. A total of 18 injury prevention projects were funded through three sequential tiers dealing with concussions, fractures and drownings.
