Saskatchewan Provincial Traffic Safety Fund Grant Program
Saskatchewan Government Insurance recognizes the importance of supporting initiatives that contribute to the safety, well-being, and vitality of local communities. The Community Grants Programs serve as a cornerstone of SGI’s commitment to giving back and investing in projects that make a positive difference.
The Provincial Traffic Safety Fund Grant Program provides up to $100,000 (per location) to municipalities and Indigenous land or territories. The goal of this fund is to stimulate and support local, collaborative action that will increase traffic safety awareness. Local traffic initiatives will help reduce collisions, traffic injuries and fatalities within Saskatchewan. The program began in 2019 and uses funds from photo speed enforcement tickets.
Traffic safety initiatives, including projects, equipment, programs and public awareness must focus on one or more of the following priority areas:
- impaired driving (alcohol, drugs)
- distracted driving (cellphone, fatigue)
- occupant protection (seatbelts)
- intersection safety
- road-way based solutions
- speed management (excluding camera equipment for PSE programs)
- aggressive driving
- vulnerable road users (pedestrians, motorcyclists, cyclists)
- medically-at-risk drivers
