Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD Canada) is a charitable, grassroots organization that is committed to stopping impaired driving and supporting the victims of this violent crime.
Each and every year, thousands of Canadians are killed or injured in impaired driving crashes. Driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs is a terrible crime that touches all our lives. It is an irresponsible, dangerous and intolerable act. MADD Canada strives to offers support services to victims/survivors, heighten awareness about the dangers of alcohol and/or drug-impaired driving, and to save lives and prevent injuries on our roads.
At the heart of MADD Canada are our volunteers; they include not only mothers, but fathers, friends, business professionals, experts in the anti-impaired driving field and concerned citizens who want to make a difference in the fight against impaired driving.

History of MADD Canada
Activity in the early 1980’s stemmed the outreach of public awareness against impaired driving in Canada. Victims/survivors of impaired driving formed many provincial groups so that they might be able to reduce the impact of drunk driving incidents in their areas.
PRIDE (People to Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere), based out of Ontario, sparked negotiations with MADD US to gain the right to become a Canadian organization. In 1990 MADD Canada was officially recognized, and all individual groups in the provinces became one organization, with one mission: to stop impaired driving, and support victims of this violent crime.
Now, MADD Canada is comprised of over 100 chapters across the country, with over 10,000 volunteers, all working towards stopping impaired driving and supporting its victims/survivors.
