Back to Top What is P.A.R.T.Y. all about? - The Ottawa Hospital




The Ottawa Hospital P.A.R.T.Y. program invites youths from community programs and high schools residing in the Eastern Ontario region to attend a day of injury prevention.

Educators who are interested in bringing a group of students to this interactive day of reality-based education can email us to receive the Teacher’s Guide


P.A.R.T.Y. is the acronym for Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth.  It is a program that designed to give the students between 15 and 18 a snapshot of the possible traumatic and often preventable consequences of risk-related behaviour that can lead to injury.  The program is offered in French or English.


A full day program offered at The Ottawa Hospital Civic campus or General campus.


The P.A.R.T.Y. program is offered on Thursdays and Fridays, 4-6 days per month, during the school calendar year.  The sessions run from 9am to 2:30pm.


The leading cause of injury and death of teenagers 15-20 is motor vehicle crashes with greater then 50% of them involving alcohol. We lose 800 teens a year to injury!



There is no fee to attend the P.A.R.T.Y. Program; however, a $100 cheque deposit is required in order to complete the registration.

We book the sessions in April for the next school year.  The booking is on a first come, first served basis.  The program is very popular and we always have a waiting list so it is important to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Cancellation and Refund Policy
