Road safety issues in Canada continues to generate public and media interest. In view of this interest and in recognition of various initiatives including the end of the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 and the ongoing Road Safety Strategy 2025, Transport Canada published a report with the goal of showing the progress Canada has made in reducing road fatalities and injuries from 2011 to 2020. The Road Safety in Canada 2020 report, published in December of last year, is a comprehensive document that provides an overview of a variety of road safety topics in Canada. It explores the gains made in road safety during this period, while highlighting issues requiring continued public awareness. Using the data from the National Collision Database, the overall level of road safety in Canada and a variety of road safety topics are examined. These include alcohol and drug impaired driving, seat belt use, distracted driving, and young drivers, to name a few. Building on the theme Road Safety – It Starts with You, a brochure was also developed to complement the report. This attractive, easy to read document provides safety tips and solutions all road users should consider to help them, their families and the community stay safe.

The CARSP Annual General Meeting (AGM) – The first portion of this webinar will be the CARSP AGM.  Learn about CARSP’s committees, including the Young Professionals’ Committee, and how you can get involved.  We will also share some exciting new things planned for CARSP in the future.  Lastly, we will give an update on CARSP’s finances and changes to our bylaws.  Please bring your questions and suggestions regarding CARSP’s services.  All are welcome.  Important documents available for viewing prior to the AGM are the 2022 Financial Statements and the Updated Bylaws (English and French).   For questions about the AGM, including these documents, email info@carsp.ca
