The Thompson Local News

A new report says that preventable accidents and injuries are among the leading causes of childhood deaths here in Canada. 


The report was released by Children First Canada and the O’Brien Institute for Public Health, and shows that British Columbia has the lowest infant mortality rate in the country at 3.5 per 1000 children born, while Manitoba comes in it at 5.4 per 1000. 


The statistics also show that 1.2 million children across the country live in low-income housing, with only two provinces having more children in low-income dwellings outside of Manitoba. 


The report is also being used as a call to action for all levels of government, as well as all Canadian to do more and invest more in future generations.
