With support from the Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal and Emera, Child Safety Link investigated pedestrian safety initiatives targeting children and youth across Nova Scotia. The purpose of this report was to combine two previous provincial documents on active transportation and safety education into one document that provides a snapshot of pedestrian safety initiatives in Nova Scotia in 2013. The report was designed to provide examples of a diverse range of pedestrian safety stakeholders and initiatives including programs, resources, policies, and advocacy across Nova Scotia, as well as some selected examples from across Canada.
