Impact of Suicide in Canada
Suicide impacts people of all ages and backgrounds in Canada.
- Every year, approximately 4,500 people in Canada die by suicide, which is equivalent
to 12 people dying by suicide every day.
- For every person lost to suicide, many more experience thoughts of suicide or suicide attempts.
- Every day, more than 200 people in Canada attempt suicide.
- For every death by suicide, at least 7 to 10 survivors are significantly affected by the loss.
“Running for Rachael holds a special place in my heart. I understand the benefits of running for my mind and body. But there is something incredible about participating, with a hope-filled community, in an event supporting suicide prevention and making a difference.
– Samantha M.
