Our program mission is to serve as a compass for youth to make healthy, safe choices, while enjoying an active life without regrets. It is meant to prevent tragedies and life-altering events. Through C.A.D.D.S.S. we will target safety and prevention.
Decisions made today can impact and change lives tomorrow and into the future.
Alcohol / Impaired Driving
Almost 36 % of all fatality collisions involve alcohol at a reading of twice the legal limit
For the past 10 years, motor vehicle related injuries have been the leading cause of injury and death of persons under 25 years of age.
In Ottawa, over the past five years, young drivers aged 16-24 were involved in over 489 motor vehicle collisions due to inattentiveness.
Young drivers aged 16-24 have the highest rate of motor vehicle crashes.
Addressed through the use of video clips and case studies involving fatal collisions.

The Some choices cannot be undone
