First Canadian city to adopt Vision Zero, in September 2015.
When more than 8,200 residents were injured and/or killed on the Edmonton roads in 2006, the City developed the first municipal Office of Traffic Safety in North America and has continuously taken steps to improve road safety. In September 2015, City council approved Edmonton’s Road Safety Strategy 2016-2020, making Edmonton the first Canadian city to officially adopt Vision Zero.
In 2021, a Safe Mobility Strategy for 2021-2025 was developed to achieve Vision Zero in Edmonton. Edmonton has seen drastic decreases in fatalities and injuries since they began Vision Zero efforts in 2015.
