The Ontario Traffic Council (OTC) prepared a School Crossing Guard Guide (SCGG) in 2006 for use by municipalities across the province. Since that time, new guidelines and manuals have been produced, the Highway Traffic Act has been amended and new best practices have emerged. Members of the OTC decided it was time to undertake a comprehensive update of the SCGG to reflect the changes in policy and best practice. Members also expressed a strong desire to ensure that the SCGG is easy to understand, justified in its guidance and straightforward to implement.
