How walk friendly is your community? The spring intake of applications to the WALK Friendly Ontario (WFO) designation is now open (March 1st until April 30th).
Creating walk friendly communities can lead to improved health outcomes, revitalize local economies, foster social connections, support aging in place, and contribute to safer and more sustainable cities and towns.
WFO is a recognition program from Green Communities Canada that encourages municipalities to create and improve the conditions for walking by awarding Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum designations. The application involves a comprehensive assessment of indicators for walkability within planning, policy, engineering and community design, education and encouragement, enforcement, and evaluation.
