Vision Zero in Canada
This case study explores the experiences, challenges and solutions of three communities in Canada that are considering, planning or implementing Vision Zero: Surrey, B.C., the Region of Durham in Ontario, and Kingston, Ont.
Parachute is excited to be asked to contribute the Canadian chapter to this handbook, set to be published in spring 2020. Matts-Åke Belin, a leader of Vision Zero in Sweden since the early 1990s, and Belin’s Swedish colleagues, are the editors. Their purpose is to “gather our international experience we now have of Vision Zero as a policy innovation and who is it spreading it over the world to other regions.”
This flyer lays out what Vision Zero is, why it is needed, and how to commit to implementing it in a community.
