This event is sold out.

Three Ontario Road Safety Forums were held in the past 18 months and were attended by over 50 people each representing a broad range of road safety interests (e.g., MTO, Transport Canada, City of Toronto, Region of Waterloo, Peel Region, Hospital for Sick Children, public health, Traffic Injury Research Foundation, MADD, CAA, Parachute, graduate students and professors of Ryerson, Toronto, Waterloo, Lakehead, Western, York, consultants).

The Forum’s objective is to create a networking event with an emphasis on evidence-based road safety. The feedback has been very positive and now we are organizing another forum to take place on Thursday, October 11, 2018. This 4th Forum will once again take place in the Galbraith Building, at the University of Toronto, Room GB 202.

Presentations due August 15

In the morning, we plan on having eight five-minute presentations on a subject of the presenter’s choice (interest, projects, work, organization, etc). Please send Geni Bahar (genibahar@navigats.com) an email if you would like to deliver a short presentation with the topic name and a short description by August 15. Following each presentation, a short discussion time will be allowed in the agenda. The first eight proposed presentations will be added to the agenda.

If you are interested in delivering a longer (15-20 min.) presentation on an evidence-based road safety study or project, please provide Geni with a description prior to August 15 so that we can consider it during the planning of the other meeting sessions.

Guidance for the slides will be sent out to the speakers; slide presentations to be submitted to Geni (genibahar@navigats.com) by September 28.


To make the best use of our time, lunch will be served in the room. There will be a $35 cash registration fee to cover morning coffee and pastries, mid-morning coffee, lunch, and afternoon juice and pop (whether you consume them or not). Receipts will be provided at registration.

Please email Geni (genibahar@navigats.com) to register as soon as possible – space is limited – and by September 21 at the latest, so that we can arrange the lunch. Provide  your name, organization, email and phone number.

Please feel free to share this information with your colleagues.

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you in October.
