Canada Road Safety Week

May 14 to 20, 2024

Canada Road Safety Week is an enforcement-driven initiative led by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP), and more specifically by the CACP’s Traffic Safety Committee. It is designed to increase public compliance with safe driving measures in order to save lives and reduce injuries on Canadian roads.

This road safety awareness campaign is part of the broader Canada’s Road Safety Strategy 2025, which aims to make Canada's roads the safest in the world. To this end, the campaign is focused on behaviours that put drivers, passengers, pedestrians and other vulnerable road users most at risk:

  • drug-impaired driving
  • alcohol-impaired driving
  • fatigue-impaired driving
  • distracted driving 
  • aggressive driving
  • driving without a seatbelt

All enforcement agencies across the country are invited to actively participate in this campaign and to encourage citizens in their respective community to adopt safe driving practices.
