APBP Submits Comments to Canadian Federal Active Transportation Strategy

On April 26, 2021, twenty-six APBP members from British Columbia, Manitoba, Quebec and Ontario met virtually to brainstorm ways the federal government can support active transportation in Canada. Eleven comments were also provided through an online discussion board. You can see the results of these consultations in the submitted letter to the federal government on the Canadian Active Transportation (AT) Strategy, which includes screenshots of the “jam board brainstorming” as well as recommended actions.

We are pleased to see the Government of Canada taking a leadership role in advancing active transportation, through its recent announcement to create a $400 million active transportation fund and the development of Canada’s first National Active Transportation Strategy.

Active transportation is an essential piece of any successful climate action strategy, while also contributing to healthy lifestyles, a high quality of life and thriving communities. Partnerships across all levels of government, the private sector and civil society can lead to transformative change in how people move in and between our communities, towns and cities. We are grateful the federal government is playing a leadership role in this transformation.
