Indigenous languages are a valued part of Canadian culture. To help spread our life-saving message to everyone, we are happy to provide resources in three Indigenous languages (Naskapi, Atikamekw, and Innu) in addition to French and English. Additional languages will be added soon – so check this page often!
We’ve also developed a logo (pictured above) specifically for Operation Lifesaver’s Indigenous rail-safety outreach resources. Indigenous design firm Design de Plume created the logo by combining the symbol of a bird — a positive and uplifting image in Indigenous culture — with the image of a train track junction. Birds are known for their perceptiveness, making them a strong symbol for rail-safety awareness.
Interested in hosting a rail safety event or a presentation in your community? Want to build capacity around rail safety?
Operation Lifesaver works together with communities, organizations, and partners to give life-saving presentations and to host rail-safety events across the country. We work with Rail Safety Ambassadors — someone from the community — to deliver presentations to people of all ages. This includes schools, friendship/cultural centres, snowmobile/ATV clubs, emergency responders, band councils, youth clubs and councils, and many more.
If you’re interested in having a presentation or activity in your community, please fill out the following form.
