2021 Virtual Summer Social

The YPC hosted an afternoon of networking and discussion with valued current and prospective members. Attendees had the opportunity to hear about the upcoming YPC events, provide input on future YPC initiatives, and connect with fellow young Canadian road safety professionals.


2021 Conference - Students & Young Professionals’ Symposium

At the 2021 CARSP/PRI Joint Conference, the YPC hosted a symposium in partnership with Parachute and the Traffic Injury Research Foundation. The symposium offered an opportunity for students and young professionals with an interest in Vision Zero, road safety and/or health promotion to come together to explore the conference’s theme (Equitability: Road Safety for all through Vision Zero and Sustainable Safety). Three events were offered and included (i) a Career Panel, moderated by Robert Colonna, the Chair of the YPC, (ii) an interactive presentation entitled "Virtual Walkabout: Vision Zero in Montreal", and (iii) a Networking Event, which allowed students and young professionals to connect with representatives from a variety of Canadian and international road safety organizations. Read more about the symposium in the Safety Network Newsletter (2021, Issue 2, Safety Network Newsletter).
