Welcome to Green Communities Canada 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:
- Print the Walkability Checklist brochure to do a walking audit in your neighbourhood.
- 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 Nano! (Niagara Region residents only)
- Take the iCANwalk pledge! Use active transportation to get to work, school, shopping and for other short trips as often as possible.
- Make your community more walkable by using the Campaign Resources on this website such as the print-ready posters and advertisements, radio and television public service announcements, and e-cards.
