Child Passenger Safety Week 

Every year, Child Safety Link and our Maritime partners celebrate Child Passenger Safety Week (CPSW) with a different theme related to protecting children in vehicles. 

National Road Safety Week

Every year, Canada Safety Council’s annual awareness campaign focuses on behaviours that put drivers, passengers and other road users most at risk: sober and alert driving, seat-belt use, and intersection-related incidents involving drivers, riders, and pedestrians. Get more information.
