About the Conference.

In the fall of 2017, CAA South Central Ontario held the Ontario School Zone Safety Conference. The event brought together industry experts to collaborate on actionable priorities to make school zones safer for children.

Through a series of speakers, panel discussions and a facilitated workshop, participants had a chance to share information and discuss opportunities and solutions.

A summary of the ideas that were conceived during the conference was developed and is available for download.

Why Is CAA Involved?

CAA believes one of the best ways we can contribute to our communities is by helping to protect our children as they travel to and from school.

Our involvement began more than 85 years ago, at a time when automobiles were becoming more common on our roads and children were getting injured because of its increasing presence near schools.

We responded with the CAA School Safety Patrol® program – a program where annually trained Student Patrollers encourage and model safe behaviour to other students and the greater community.

Today, with increased traffic – including around schools – safety and security for children and their families travelling to school is more relevant than ever.
