Older Drivers in Canada

This site is intended to communicate the impact of normal aging and prevalent health conditions on safe driving and provide useful tips based on scientific evidence of high risk situations and risk-reducing strategies. Launched by the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT), in partnership with the Public Agency of Canada, the site draws on the work of the CAOT's The National Blueprint for Injury Prevention in Older Drivers which outlines a vision and identified directions for action for promoting safe driving among older drivers in Canada. The Blueprint is directed towards increasing the capacity of older adults to drive safely for as long as possible and maintain their engagement in the occupations which give meaning and purpose to their lives.

The site is divided into resources for caregivers and for health professionals.
