About the Ottawa Safety Council
Whether you are driving, riding, walking, or cycling, regardless of age, we all use the roads in some way.
This means that we have a responsibility to keep our roads safe for ourselves and others. By playing our part, we can reduce risk and help to eliminate road accidents in our community.
The Ottawa Safety Council is a not-for-profit organization offering an array of road safety programs and services within the community. Through education, training, and awareness, we want to enable everyone to help create safer roads in our communities.

“You should be aware of your own comfort level. You know what you can handle and if something ever feels out of your comfort zone, just don’t do it.” Amy Volume.
“Make sure to be seen. [As a pedestrian,] what I make sure to do is stop before I cross and make eye contact with the driver. Then I know, ok they see me, and I can safely cross the road without any fear of being hit.”- Road safety tips from an avid pedestrian.
