What we do
The Canadian Agricultural Injury Reporting (CAIR), formerly known as the Canadian Agriculture Injury Surveillance Program (CAISP) was established in 1995 in response to the need for better information about fatal and hospitalized agriculture-related injuries in Canada. CAIR is a national program with collaborators in each of the ten provinces of Canada.
Why we do it
Agricultural injuries have been recognized as an important rural health issue since the 1960s, when the problem was first recognized in the medical literature. Until the establishment of CAIR, Canadian data on agricultural injuries were limited. This surveillance program has filled an important void in providing national evidence of agricultural injury occurrence that can be used in developing and targeting effective injury-prevention strategies.Click here to see more...
