Cycling in Canada increased between 1996 and 2016. Canadian communities are taking tangible action to grow cycling as a viable transportation option.
To share the most effective strategies, we created Increasing Cycling in Canada: A Guide to What Works.

About the Guide
Evidence for the Guide comes from five years of Canadian-specific work by researchers from Toronto, Montréal, and Vancouver. Between 2014 and 2019, we analyzed national demographic, geographic and transportation data sets, evaluated cycling programs, conducted interviews with municipal staff and community organizations, and gathered costing information for infrastructure projects and cycling programs from across the country. We also carried out research on how to measure cycling benefits, particularly those that cut across the silos of economic, social and health factors.
Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and the Metcalf Foundation, we published our findings in a series of academic papers and reports, which the Guide draws upon. The original research can be found under Supporting Research.
