Back to School Safety

Back to school is an exciting time for both parents and children. With school back in session there is a lot more traffic on the road and a lot of kids walking, riding and getting dropped off at school.

How can I request a School Crossing Guard for my neighbourhood?

If you are concerned about the safety of children crossing at a certain location call 905-546-2200 and provide:

  • the location
  • number of children
  • schools in the area
  • posted traffic speed
  • any other pertinent information

City staff will survey the location and report their findings in a recommendation to City Council for their approval.
