On average, five people die on Canada's roads each day. The National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims is Canada’s way to remember and honour these victims and their families.
It is commemorated the third Wednesday each November and is solemn reminder of the often preventative nature of these tragedies. When it comes to driving, avoidable actions can save lives.
A downloadable Communication Tool Kit is available and provides materials to help you and your community mark the day.
