Parachute is pleased to announce 4 grant opportunities to raise awareness of rail safety by targeting all road users (pedestrians, cyclists and drivers) across Canada. Parachute is a national, charitable organization dedicated to bringing attention to the issue of preventable injury and helping Canadians reduce their risks for injury.
About the #CrossSAFE Program
The #CrossSAFE program, which is funded in part by Transport Canada, will help to grow the capacity of local communities committed to rail safety education and awareness across Canada. Parachute will integrate #CrossSAFE messages and materials into annual educational campaigns (such as Back to School, National Teen Driver Safety Week and National Rail Safety Week) with a tie-in to rail safety and Vision Zero efforts. #CrossSAFE will measure a change in understanding of safe behaviours around railways with parents, children and youth.
