The Niagara Safety Village is excited to be celebrating our 10th anniversary, providing safety education to the children of Niagara and Haldimand/Norfolk. As we enter our 10th year we reflect on all the wonderful and positive changes we have gone through and look forward to many more years in the future, educating our communities on injury prevention.
The Niagara Safety Village (formerly known as the Niagara Region Children's Safety Village) opened its doors in the fall of 2003 after much planning. Throughout the years we have seen changes in our curriculum, the grades we provide programming to, the overall increase in participation, and the creation of the Ted Cyr "Young Heroes Award" which has been given to 8 young children since 2005 for putting in to practice what they learned at the safety village and for their heroic efforts. The Niagara Safety Village has also branched out to offer programming for Ontario Early Years, Community Living, Girl Guides, Scouts, Seniors and special needs children and adults. With the changes we were going through we felt changing our name would better reflect the groups we provide safety education and injury prevention to.
All of this would not be possible without the support from our partners, the Niagara Regional Police, Niagara Region Fire Services, Niagara EMS, Niagara Region's Emergency Management and Niagara College
As a registered non-profit organization we do not receive any government funding or on-going funding and we rely solely on the generosity of many of our sponsors, local businesses, families and schools who support us and believe in what we do.
