About the Fund
The Ontario Active School Travel Fund is part of Ontario Active School Travel, a provincial framework for increasing active transportation for school journeys. Ontario Active School Travel is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Education, and managed and delivered by Green Communities Canada (GCC). The ultimate goal is to achieve population-level change – to reverse the decline in active school travel in Ontario, and to establish a culture of walking and wheeling for school journeys.
