Program description

The P.A.R.T.Y. Program ( Prevent Alcohol and Risk-related Trauma in Youth) is a dynamic, interactive injury prevention. health promotion program for teenagers. P.A.R.T.Y. was developed in 1986 at Sunnybrook and Women’s College Health Science Centre in Toronto, Ontario, through the request from teenagers.

In Canada, the incidence of trauma injury and death occurs in the 15-24 year age groups. P.A.R.T.Y. was created to educate teens about the perils of risk taking in behaviour and the tragic consequences that can occur. This program is a vital component of the growing effort to reduce death and injury in alcohol and risk-related incidents.

Mock Car Crash

MBIA also stages an annual mock car crash in both Winnipeg and one other Manitoba location. The dramatic event shows students the potential results of driving while impaired, without a seatbelt, or while speeding.

Students witness actors and rescue personnel in the aftermath of a collision. A number of individuals and organizations voluntarily assist to create a realistic crash scenario including:



  • Police service traffic divisions (WPS and RCMP)
  • Paramedic Association of Manitoba
  • Chapel Lawn Funeral Home
