The Province of British Columbia is developing an active transportation strategy to increase the number of British Columbians who chose active transportation to get around. We want to ensure that the Strategy reflects the needs and priorities of British Columbians of all ages, genders, abilities, socioeconomic levels and geographies.
To support this, we reached out to Indigenous communities, local communities, stakeholders and the public for input.
The engagement was designed to connect with and hear from active transportation users, advocacy groups, planners, engineers, health professionals and elected leaders who are working to make active transportation options safer, more convenient and accessible for their communities.
Date: March 1 to April 15, 2019
