Under the Highway Traffic Act (HTA), the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is required to report annually on motor vehicle collision statistics. The Ontario Road Safety Annual Report (ORSAR) is a comprehensive record of road safety statistics. The primary source of data is collision reports provided by police services.

The ORSAR report is organized among seven datasets:

  • Chapter 2: Highlights traffic fatalities and injuries by severity and characteristics of the road users involved.

  • Chapter 3: Profiles the types of collisions that occur on Ontario’s roads.

  • Chapter 4: Identifies the location of collisions in Ontario and provides a breakdown of the various classes of collision, the number of persons killed or injured and the number of motor vehicle registrations by municipality and county.

  • Chapter 5: Examines the types of vehicles involved in motor vehicle collisions in Ontario.

  • Chapter 6: Examines vehicles of special interest, including motorcycles, school buses, large trucks, snowmobiles, off-road vehicles and bicycles.
