We are the Okanagan Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD Canada), 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 offer 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.
Our Chapter is focused on promoting MADD’s objectives in the Central Okanagan. Among other things, we:
- organize and attend local events to raise awareness of the dangers of impaired driving.
- conduct local campaigns to reduce impaired driving, including the Campaign 911 signs featured on roads throughout our community.
- support local victims/survivors of impaired driving by providing emotional support, referrals to service providers, and information to help deal with the criminal justice process.
If you need help, or would like to join us in supporting MADD Canada’s mission, please call us at 250-317-9877.
