Conference Theme Origin

The trend of Canadian provinces and municipalities adopting Vision Zero as their road safety or transportation strategy, and the corresponding need this has created for clarification, sharing and inspiring change related to the Vision Zero approach, is the driving force behind the 2019 theme. Vision Zero got its roots in Sweden, where the approach has resulted in noteworthy successes – Sweden has one of the lowest annual rates of road deaths in the world (2.8 out of 100,000 as compared to 6.0 in Canada and 10.6 in the United States). Fatalities involving pedestrians have also fallen, by almost 50% in the last 5 years. Now, this approach is catching on throughout North America, with the hopes of achieving similar success.
