WALK Friendly Ontario was a recognition program that encouraged municipalities to create and improve spaces and places to walk by awarding Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum designations.

Using our comprehensive framework of indicators for walkability, municipalities could benchmark their current status and measure progress over time.

The program gave walking a prominent profile in community planning and design, and encouraged municipal governments to set targets for improvements.
