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.
