Our research agenda prioritizes important topics requiring research and action. Most importantly, TIRF works with practitioners in transportation, health and criminal justice to help them implement research findings and accelerate change in the real world.
After more than five decades, TIRF’s vision and commitment are stronger than ever.
With a proven, sustained dedication to improving road safety, TIRF can help.
The overwhelming majority of deaths and injuries on our roads are preventable.
TIRF has worked to improve road safety for all Canadians by generating and sharing knowledge on current and emerging issues and trends that affect road safety.
