TIRF’s research and educational tools support the work of communities across Canada.
Each year, thousands of parents, health care workers, teachers, employers, police services journalists and advocacy organizations download and use our products to support their efforts. They also contact us directly to request guidance and expertise to implement road safety initiatives. Our metrics speak for themselves.
Your donations and our work enables them to spend less time looking for answers and more time developing and implementing road safety strategies.
We share a common goal to make sure everyone gets home safely every day. Your donation helps the Traffic Injury Research Foundation continue to develop and share the knowledge that saves – preventing injuries and loss of life on the roads, reducing related social, health and insurance costs, and safeguarding families and our workforce.
Online gifts can be made through credit card or PayPal. Donations can be a one-time donation or a monthly gift.
Donations from private companies, corporations, associations as well as government departments and agencies support our work in promoting safe driving programs and practices. Working together we can reduce the number of deaths and injuries on our roads.
Through TIRF’s research, education programs, initiatives, and public awareness efforts with communities and employers, TIRF and your organization can help make sure everyone gets home safe at the end of every day.
Everyone has the power to make roads safer.
