International Walk to School Month
International Walk to School Month (IWALK) is an annual mass celebration of active transportation taking place around the world every October.
Traditionally hundreds of schools across Ontario celebrate IWALK with special events on IWALK Day (the first Wednesday of October) or anytime throughout the month.
In 2020 that would not have been appropriate in light of the ongoing challenges of COVID. However, we encouraged schools to continue to promote walking (and wheeling) as a safe, healthy choice for students and families for the journey to school.
