|9th edition of (International Level Crossing Awareness Day) ILCAD June 2, 2017 Press conference and roundtable discussion, Montréal, Québec, Canada|
The Railway Association of Canada (RAC), the voice of Canada’s railway sector, will host the 9th edition of International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD) on June 2, 2017, in Montréal, Québec, Canada. ILCAD - which draws railway industry representatives, road authorities, academics and more from around the world - aims to raise awareness about the dangers associated with roadway-railway crossings.
The International Level Crossing Awareness Day is a joint commitment that began in 2009 with ELCAD (EU countries + Israel). Since then, UIC has been coordinating this worldwide event to raise public awareness about the dangers at level crossings. The 8th edition of ILCAD was held on June 10-11, 2016, with over 40 countries in attendance and was officially launched through a press conference and a roundtable. ILCAD 2016 was hosted by Latvian Railways (LDz) with a technical visit organized by Operation Lifesaver Estonia (OLE) in Tallinn.
