What we do

Canadian Agricultural Injury Reporting (CAIR) was established in 1995 as the Canadian Agriculture Injury Surveillance Program (CAISP) to provide a comprehensive accounting of fatal and hospitalized agricultural injuries in Canada. CAIR is a national program led by volunteers with funding from the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) through Growing Forward 2, a federal, provincial, territorial initiative.

CAIR contracts with the Alberta Centre for Injury Control & Research at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta to collect and analyze information on agricultural injuries provided by designated collaborators from across Canada. Through CAIR, researchers, representatives of government agencies, farmers and health and safety specialists all contribute to the analysis and dissemination of the trends and safety messages.
