Join the call for federal leadership on active transportation

Champions of active transportation have issued a fresh call for federal leadership in making Canada a great place for active transportation. (See letter, signed by 23 prominent organizations.)

Supporters should write to Minister of Transportation Marc Garneau. Please copy your MP and other government contacts, as well as Clifford Maynes, and Anders Swanson.

The call for federal action is prompted by two exciting developments:

  • publication of an October 2018 report by a committee of the Council of Ministers Responsible for Transportation and Highway Safety.
  • resolution calling for federal leadership on active transportation by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, June 2018.

Both initiatives support a strong role for the federal government in implementing active transportation, and in coordinating the work of other levels of government and stakeholders.

The call for action proposes a collaborative approach that includes NGOs, and professional and business associations. The call is led by a broad alliance of cycling, walking, and active school organizations, represented by Vélo Canada Bikes, Green Communities Canada (Canada Walks), and Active School Travel Canada.
