Since its creation in 1984, Operation Red Nose and its safe ride home service have become the most important road safety campaign against impaired driving in Canada. Today the program is run on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9:00PM to 3:00AM during the time frame of November 25th to December 31st of each year. Thousands of rides are provided each night of operation across the country.

"We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Ontario Safety League as the official sponsor of such a special program," stated IBAO CEO Randy Carroll. "Operation Red Nose is an amazing service offered in many communities across Ontario and we are proud to support their initiative in encouraging responsible behavior with regards to impaired driving. We want all Ontario citizens to stay safe this holiday season."

The Ontario Safety League is the "Provincial Host" of Operation Red Nose for Ontario. Today, the official national program was launched in Québec, where the program originated. Throughout the month of November, community launch dates will be held in all 15 participating regions across Ontario. The official Ontario launch will be held on November 17th, 2011 at Queen's Park in Toronto with IBAO's Chairman, Bryan Yetman.
