Victim Services - Tributes and Memorials
MADD Canada helps victims pay tribute to their loved ones or recognize injuries they themselves have suffered through a variety of memorial and tribute efforts. These memorials and tributes give a voice to those who have been affected by impaired driving, acknowledge the losses they have suffered and help bring the personal and human realities of impaired driving to a society numbed by statistics and headlines.
MADD Canada’s On-Line Victims' Tributes has been created out of a profound commitment to and respect for those whose lives have been changed forever as a result of impaired driving. Through these personalized tributes, it is our hope to give the victims of this violent crime both a voice and a face.
The tributes contained here have been added at the request of victims themselves or their families. If you would like to receive more information about creating a tribute for a loved one, or would like to have your own story added as a survivor of an impaired driving crash, please contact our National Office at email@example.com.
Family and friends can set up a Memorial Tribute Fund in memory of their loved one which celebrates and commemorates their life. The Memorial Tribute Fund in memory of a loved one is a lasting way to commemorate the life of someone special while raising money to help fight impaired driving and support victims of this violent crime. For more information, click here or contact us at 1-800-665-6233.
The Memorial Wall at MADD Canada’s National Office is a lasting and moving tribute to those who have been killed or injured in an impaired driving crash. Photographs of victims line the walls and common meeting rooms under a banner stating “We Remember.” This beautiful tribute honours all victims of impaired driving and serves as a powerful symbol of our commitment to stop impaired driving and to support victims of this violent crime.
If you would like to have a photograph added to the Memorial Wall, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Victims of impaired driving may apply to have a Roadside Memorial erected in memory of their loved one. The Memorial Marker that is placed at roadside marks the site where an individual has been innocently killed because of drug or alcohol impairment on our highways. The placing of a Memorial Marker serves as a constant reminder of the life-altering/life ending effects of this 100% preventable crime.
Currently, this program is only available in some areas of Canada. For more information, please contact Gloria Appleby at email@example.com or call 1-800-665-6233, ext. 222.
National Day of Remembrance
National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims in Canada remembers those killed or seriously injured on Canadians roads, often in avoidable collisions, and those left to the deal with the sudden and unexpected loss of people they love.
MADD Canada and other victim-focused organizations and agencies participate in this annual day to remember victims and show our support.
