History in Manitoba

In 1936, at Greenway School in Winnipeg, teacher Louise Staples organized the first CAA School Safety Patrol® team. Months later, student Patrols were instated city-wide to protect pedestrians and promote road safety in school zones.

For more than 80 years, CAA Manitoba has been proud to help keep communities safer with the CAA School Safety Patrol Program.

Across Canada, CAA has a long history of working with safety partners to bring road safety programs and initiatives to communities, and the CAA School Safety Patrol Program in Manitoba is no different. Manitoba Public Insurance provides funding for program materials, and we work with local police services, to ensure this top-notch safety program continues to be the best it can be.
