Injury in Review 2011 Edition Spotlight on Road and Transport Safety - Public Health Agency of Canada releases select results

In recognition that 2011 was Canada’s National Year of Road Safety and the beginning of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety, the second report from the Injury in Review series by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) looks at road and transport safety in Canada. The review is based on collaboration between PHAC, Safe Kids Canada and the Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF).  

Select results and the upcoming full report provide information on injuries in Canada with a focus on road safety for children, youth and young adults (up to 24 years of age). Select results from the report are currently available. The release of the full version of the report is anticipated for Spring 2012.  

TIRF is pleased to have contributed to the report by providing data from the TIRF-maintained Strategy to Reduce Impaired Driving (STRID) Fatality Database. The STRID Fatality Database is co-sponsored by Transport Canada and the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators.
