Vision Zero and the Safe System Approach: A Primer for Canada (2023)

Road safety is receiving more global attention than ever, with the Second Decade of Action for Road Safety being declared in 2020 by the World Health Organization and the United Nations.

Canadian roads saw 1,745 fatalities and 7,868 serious injuries in 2020, or an average of five deaths and 22 serious injuries every day that impacted families and communities across the country. In response to this unacceptable toll, Canada’s Road Safety Strategy 2025 adopts the Safe System Approach. Many provinces, territories and municipalities are also pursuing similar agendas. The objectives of this primer are to establish clear definitions and principles for Vision Zero and the Safe System Approach, to promote greater understanding of these concepts, and to support the development, identification and sharing of Canadian best practices.
