Dear Colleagues,

Six Ontario Road Safety Forums have been held over the past 3 years and were each attended by 55 to 80 people, each representing a broad range of road safety interests (e.g., MTO, Transport Canada, City of Toronto, Region of Waterloo, Peel Region, Hospital for Sick Children, Public Health, Toronto Police, Peel Regional Police, O.P.P., Traffic Injury Research Foundation, MADD, CAA, Parachute, graduate students and professors of Ryerson, Toronto, Waterloo, Lakehead, Western, and York universities, consultants, etc.).

The Forum’s objective is to create a networking event with an emphasis on evidence-based road safety. The feedback has been very positive and now we are organizing another forum to take place on April 30th, 2020. This 7th Forum will once again take place in the Galbraith Building at the University of Toronto, Room GB 202.

There will be a $35 registration fee to cover morning coffee and pastries, mid-morning coffee, lunch, and afternoon juice and pop (whether you consume them or not). Please pay by Interac E-transfer (see your on-line banking) to Enter “Fee from your name and email address for Ontario Road Safety Forum” in the Message box (so we can record receipt of your fee) and then click on “print” when you complete your E-transfer to produce a receipt. If you need to create a security question, it can be “name of city forum held” with answer “Toronto”.

Please enroll as soon as possible; enrollment will close on April 14th. Please note that if room capacity is reached as happened last fall, enrollment will need to be closed earlier.

The agenda will be distributed to all those registered to the Forum in a future email.

NEWS….The CARSP Young Professionals Committee will be hosting a “Meet and Greet” at the upcoming Ontario Road Safety Forum during the morning break. This event is intended for young professionals and students who work, study or have an interest in road safety, to meet each other. There will be a small activity to encourage networking with other forum attendees and a small gift card will be awarded to the winner(s) at the end. Stay tuned for more information.

For any questions, please send an email to Geni at

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on April 30, 2020.
