The State of the Walking Movement in Canada

Canada Walks is working with Ryerson University to conduct a survey to learn more about the state of the walking movement in Canada. The survey is aimed at national, provincial and local organizations and groups that:

  • promote and support walking and walkability
  • have walking/walkability in their mandate
  • have staff or volunteers who work directly on walking related initiatives

Completing the survey will take about 15 minutes of your time.

We appreciate your help with outreach and encourage you to pass the link to the survey along to other relevant organizations you know of.

The information collected will be used to assess how we can work more effectively together towards a walk friendly future for Canada. The survey results will be shared through conference and webinar presentations in an effort to raise the profile of walking and walkability. This is just a first step toward capturing what’s happening with walking across the country, leading to a broader conversation about a national collaborative and/or strategy.

Please follow this link to the survey: and respond by Friday, February 27th.

Thank you in advance for participating in this important research to better understand the walking movement in Canada!
