Most Canadians drive or ride in cars, vans, buses or trucks to get where they want and need to go. Canada has nearly 900,000 kilometres of road — enough to circle the globe 22 times!
Canada's national highway system is made up of over 38,000 kilometres of important national and regional highways.
All levels of government, as well as several instrumental public- and private-sector partners, are working together to support the Canada's Road Safety Strategy 2015 plan and make Canada's roads the safest in the world.
