Between 2020 and 2022, Green Communities Canada (GCC) and the Human Environments Analysis Lab (HEAL) at Western University conducted extensive policy research on active travel to school, culminating in a final report of 57 key policy recommendations.
GCC, in partnership with The Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT), is hosting a series of three webinars that will provide key insights from the policy recommendations report, share best practices for traffic calming, and explore snow maintenance strategies to encourage active school travel during winter months.
