Preliminary Educational Sessions Descriptions*

Autonomous Vehicles: A jurisdictional perspective

This session will address Federal, Provincial and Territorial Governments’ current activities related to autonomous vehicles and how they are planning for the future. How do these activities impact the future of road safety? What are the challenges? What are the opportunities?

Impaired Driving: What research can tell us

Drug impaired driving is a road safety priority for governments and stakeholders in transportation, health, enforcement and road safety. With cannabis fully legalized in Canada, there is need for continued research and surveillance to monitor the impact of cannabis on Canada’s roads. This session will highlight current research and key findings that will help inform approaches to drug impaired driving.

Research and autonomous vehicles. Preparing for the future.

Autonomous vehicles continue to be at the forefront of the changing transportation landscape. This session will focus on current and future autonomous vehicle research and trends that will impact Canadians.

The future of roads and road safety

The introduction of autonomous and connected vehicles, electric vehicles, e-scooters, e-bikes, ride-sharing, bike sharing, and other technologies to roadways are changing the transportation ecosystem. This session will explore the unique challenges and opportunities for safe interaction between current and future road users as we continue to work towards zero fatalities and serious injuries on Canada’s roads.
