Toyota & The Community
HELPING TO MAKE YOUR COMMUNITY A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE.
We are committed to building a better society for Canadians by working with like-minded partner organizations and our own dealership network, to support community excellence within the pillars of education, environment, and safety.

- 1,335 workshops have been held to train 45,467 teachers, parents, administrators and community members in the design and implementation of outdoor classrooms and natural learning spaces;
- 218 Toyota Dealerships across Canada have helped schools through funding or by lending a helping hand.
TIRF (Traffic Injury Research Foundation)
TIRF is Canada's road safety research institute. TIRF’s mission is to create evidence-based strategies to reduce the number of deaths and injuries on the road. The Toyota Canada Foundation and TIRF have developed a comprehensive public research and education program, Brain on Board. It focuses on teaching drivers available safety features on their vehicle and how to use them.
Toyota aims to educate Canadian families about vehicle safety. The one-day kartSTART course provides youngsters – ages 10 and up – a driving experience in go-karts. Expert instructors offer an understanding behind the dynamics of driving a motorized vehicle in a monitored and closed course environment. Families also experience the Toyota Star Safety SystemTM and Toyota Safety SenseTM technology.
