Active Transportation and Complete Streets in Toronto: The Built Environment & Health Connection

On January 26, 2017, TCAT Director Nancy Smith Lea has been invited to give a guest lecture at the University of Toronto Geography and Planning undergraduate course on the Built Environment and Health. Nancy will discuss how the demonstrated relationship between the built environment and health (e.g. Glazier et al; Frank et al; Toronto Public Health) has had a direct impact on the work that TCAT has tackled over the past several years (e.g. Active Neighbourhoods Canada; Community Engagement & Active Transportation: Two Demonstration Projects in Toronto; A Guide to Safer Streets Near Schools). She will also describe how TCAT has worked with partners at the University of Toronto, CultureLink, and Cycle Toronto to develop evidence-based programming to strategically target cycling interventions outside the downtown core (e.g. Community Based Social Marketing Pilot Program for Active Transportation in Peel Region; Scarborough Cycles).
