This grant intends to:

  • Support the development of ideas that could help address traffic safety issues in Saskatchewan.
  • Develop expertise and interest in graduate students in the area of road safety.
  • Use the University of Regina’s expertise to broaden the scope of SGI’s traffic safety research.
