Walk and Bike More - drive less!

Welcome to Green Communities Canada's iCANwalk initiative!

iCANwalk promotes walking and walk friendly communities across Ontario. The aim is to encourage active transportation - walking, biking, in-line skating, skateboarding - instead of traveling by car, for short trips. Small changes can make a big difference to reduce green house gas (GHG) emissions and create a healthy, active community.

Here’s what you can do:

  • NEW! Take your phone for a walk and audit your neighbourhood! The Walkability Checklist is now easy to use with your mobile device. Click here to access the mobile-friendly version.


  • Print the Walkability Checklist brochure to do a walking audit in your neighbourhood, then enter the information that you collect into the Checklist Database to contribute to information about how walkable your community is. Enter the draw to win an iPod shuffle! (Niagara Region residents only)


  • Use the iCANwalk pledge to promote active transportation to get to work, school, shopping and for other short trips as often as possible. Access other resources to use in your local walking campaign such as the print-ready posters and advertisements, radio and television public service announcements, and e-cards.
