Creating Car-Free ‘School Streets’ Around Ontario Schools

Green Communities Canada (GCC) is proud to introduce the Ontario School Streets Pilot project, which is testing the creation of car-free zones in streets adjacent to schools in three Canadian cities: Hamilton, Markham, and Mississauga. Each local pilot is being led on the ground by the local municipality and will develop recommendations for the planning, permitting, and implementation of School Streets programs in municipal settings. The project is managed by GCC, working in partnership with 8 80 Cities as an expert technical advisor.

GCC and 8 80 Cities staff will present an overview of the Ontario School Streets Pilot at the Ontario Traffic Council School Zone Safety Symposium on Monday, November 29th 

The Ontario School Streets Pilot project is funded through the Ontario Active School Travel Fund, which is made possible through the financial support of the Government of Ontario.
