Statistics and Resources

Evidence-Based Solutions

The Safe Communities Partnership seeks to implement programs and initiatives that meet prevalent safety and injury prevention needs of Sault Ste. Marie's citizens. To develop our programs, we analyze trends and statistics and create evidence-based solutions to address the interests of the community.

To help the community understand our process for developing programs and initiatives, and to help educate the community on relevant issues, we have provided articles and information pieces that outline safety and injury prevention of the local, regional, provincial and national communities that we belong to.
