Ride With Respect Program

*Please note this program will resume once funding becomes available

This was developed by the Alberta Government working with the Alberta Off-Highway Vehicle Association, Alberta Snowmobile Association, Alberta TrailNet and the Alberta Safety Council. Its purpose is to provide school children with information about operating off-highway vehicles in a safe, respectful, and environmentally-friendly manner. The ultimate goal is to help reduce incidents through pro-active education. The desire is to also teach students how to be respectful of other trail users and to be aware of how to "tread lightly" on the land on which we ride.

Ride with Respect is tailored and available in three grade levels:

  • Grades 1 – 3
  • Grades 4 – 6
  • Grades 7 – 12

Each lesson helps to meet the Alberta Education Program of Studies and is offered at no cost to the students or schools.

The lesson takes approximately 45 minutes to deliver and is interactive and participative in nature. There are also some educational worksheets that can be left with the students to encourage discussion on these topics at home.
