Green Communities Canada is part of a national alliance working toward a national action plan that will pick up the pace of progress in making Canada a great place to walk and cycle, for people of all ages.

Since December 2016, we have been working with Canada Bikes and Active School Travel Canada. Our goal: a vision, targets, and a collaborative agenda for action involving all levels of government, NGOs, professional associations, community groups, and others.

See website, which summarizes the scope and need for a strategy, the amazing breadth of support it has (more than 160 signatories), and the benefits of active transportation. There’s also a “take action” page to join the call for a strategy, get connected, and reach out to decision-makers.

Discussions are ongoing with federal government ministries regarding funding for the action planning initiative.
