SunSense program

In Newfoundland and Labrador, we’re proud of our province-wide SunSense campaign. This student-led health promotion program highlights the importance of sun safety throughout the province.

SunSense students focus on the 5 S’s of sun safety:

  • Slip on UV-protective clothing.
  • Slop on sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • Slap on a wide-brimmed hat.
  • Seek shade.
  • Slide on UV-protective sunglasses.

SunSense students attend events across Newfoundland and share important sun safety information with many groups, including:

  • daycare centres
  • summer camps
  • corporate offices
  • outdoor workplaces, such as construction sites

SunSense students give more than 200 sun safety presentations over the summer.
