Ontario Active School Travel Fund
The Ontario Active School Travel Fund seeks to increase physical activity opportunities for Ontario students by supporting and expanding active school travel programs for elementary age children. We want more students to walk, cycle, scoot and skateboard for their daily school journeys.
Thanks to a multi-year financial contribution from the Government of Ontario, Green Communities Canada has awarded application-based funding for initiatives that will have a lasting impact on, and establish a foundation for continued growth in, active school travel in 52 communities across the province.
In Spring 2018, 12 projects received funding. Click on the projects below to find out more.
