Background

The National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims in Canada is a day set aside to remember people killed or seriously injured on Canadian road, often in avoidable collisions, and those left to deal with the sudden and unexpected loss of those they love.

The good news is that we can save lives. Last year, one life was saved every day because Canada is:

  • Increasing enforcement
  • Introducing new policies
  • Building safer vehicles
  • Changing road user behaviour
  • Improving our roads

But even though the number of road deaths is decreasing, there is still a great deal of work to do.

People and organizations across Canada are organizing their own local events to honour Canadian road crash victims and improve road safety. This section allows you to find events in your area and list your own events.
