Dear MADD Canada Members, Volunteers and Supporters:
We hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.
Like all of you, the MADD Canada family is striving to meet the challenges presented by the COVID-19 outbreak. We are committed to following the guidance of our public health authorities, and to ensuring the safety of our volunteers, staff and the public.
That has, of course, changed the way we do business for now. Local events and presentations have been postponed. Our in-school programs have been suspended as a result of school closures. Our National Conference for Victims of Impaired Driving, and National Leadership Conference have been rescheduled for the fall months.
But we want to assure everyone that MADD Canada continues to advance our mission to stop impaired driving and to support victims and survivors. We have a vast array of materials on our web site to raise awareness and educate people about the risks of impaired driving. You can check out other pages here for PSAs, educational videos, brochures and our powerful victim stories.
You can also stay in touch with us through our social media pages.

Isolating ourselves is a challenge for everyone. It can be especially difficult for victims and survivors of impaired driving, who are already dealing with such a range of painful emotions.
We want to assure everyone that our victim support and resources are all still available to help those who have been personally impacted by impaired driving. We continue to offer one-on-one victim support through our Victim Support Line, our Victim Services Managers and local Victim Services Volunteers. If you wish to speak with someone about our support services, please see our contact info. We also offer numerous online resources here on our web site.
Together with our Chapters and Community Leaders across the country, MADD Canada remains as dedicated as ever to our goals.
We look forward to being able to deliver our programs and services in person again soon. Until then, let’s all follow the safety guidelines being issued by Health Canada and by local public health authorities. We will get through this together.
Please be safe and stay well.
MADD Canada National President
