Injuries in Ontario: ICES Atlas


Injuries, many of which are predictable and preventable, contribute substantially to the burden on Ontario's healthcare system. Between April 2002 and March 2003, there were more than 1.2 million injury-related emergency visits and over 62,000 injury-related hospitalizations in the province. This report provides a meaningful description of injuries by age group, sex, geographic area and type of injury, highlighting the need for population-based prevention strategies that target specific at-risk groups.
