The safety of Canada roads is moderately good by international standards, and is improving both in terms of accidents per head of population and per billion vehicle kilometers
There are many classes of roads in Canada as you can see in Canada roads map. The only inter-provincial systems are the Trans-Canada Highway and National Highway System. Internationally, Canada has road links with both the lower 48 US states and Alaska. The Ministry of Transportation maintains the road network in Ontario and also employs Ministry of Transport Enforcement Officers for the purpose of administering the Canada Transportation Act and related regulations. The Department of Transportation in New Brunswick performs a similar task in that province as well.

Roads and highways were managed by provincial and municipal authorities until construction of the Northwest Highway System (the Alaska Highway) and the Trans-Canada Highway project initiation. The Alaska Highway of 1942 was constructed during World War II for military purposes connecting Fort St. John, British Columbia with Fairbanks, Alaska. The transcontinental highway, a joint national and provincial expenditure, was begun in 1949 under the initiation of the Trans Canada Highway Act in December 10, 1949. The 7,821 km (4,860 mi) highway as its mentioned in Canada highway map was completed in 1962 at a total expenditure of $1.4 billion.
Trans-Canada Highway, is the principal highway of Canada and the world longest national road. The road extends west-east between the Pacific and Atlantic coasts across the breadth of the country for 4,860 miles (7,821 km), between Victoria (Vancouver Island, British Columbia) and St. John (Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador) as you can see in Canada highway map. It passes through all 10 Canadian provinces, links many of the country leading cities, and allows access to important national and provincial parks.
Numbered highways in Canada are split by province, and a majority are maintained by their province or territory transportation department. All highways in Canada are numbered except for three in the Northwest Territories, and all in Nunavut; one highway in Alberta, one highway in Ontario, two highways in Quebec, and Ontario 7000 Series, are not marked with their highway number as its shown in Canada highway map, but have been assigned one by the transportation department.
