KidsAndCars.org/Canada is the first international sister organization of KidsAndCars.org.
After seeing Founder and President Janette Fennell present the history and ongoing mission of the KidsAndCars.org organization, John McKiggan of the Nova Scotia law firm of Arnold Pizzo McKiggan approached Janette about how they could bring this same child-focused safety mission to Canada.
In late 2011, KidsAndCars.org/Canada was established as a non-profit organization in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Like KidsAndCar.org, KidsAndCars.org/Canada is a non-profit organization and shares the same mission: To dedicate its efforts to preventing injuries and death to children in or around motor vehicles and to promote the highest level of safety awareness among parents, caregivers, and the public-at-large. Just like KidsAndCars.org, KidsAndCars.org/Canada has adopted as its Five Areas of Focus: Data Collection, Education, Policy Change, Regulation and Survivor Advocacy.
