The CCCIP Award for Collaborative Excellence
The CCCIP Award for Collaborative Excellence is an award typically presented every second year at the Canadian Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion Conference. This year the award will be presented through Parachute Canada’s extensive network of injury prevention professionals and advocates. The CCCIP Award for Collaborative Excellence recognizes and celebrates the value and power of collaboration as the keystone of effective injury prevention and safety promotion practice in Canada.
The purpose of the CCCIP Award for Collaborative Excellence is to recognize a Collaborative that has systematically identified a significant injury challenge, has recognized that the best approach for addressing that challenge is through collaboration, and has worked together effectively to address it.
