The resources include print materials—safety brochures and coloring and activity sheets for children—and virtual-reality videos that have been translated into Innu, Naskapi and Atikamekw, as well as English and French.
OL aims to expand its range of translated Indigenous resources in the coming months to include Ojibway, Cree, Mohawk and Mi’kmaq languages, and has hired a new outreach coordinator to engage with Indigenous communities across Canada with regards to rail safety.
All of OL’s Indigenous resources feature a logo—developed by Indigenous design firm Design de Plume—which combines the symbol of a bird with the image of a track junction. Known for their perceptiveness, birds serve as a strong symbol for rail-safety awareness.
