For a bike-friendly Canada

Since 2012 Velo Canada Bikes has worked for a bike friendly Canada. Hosting national Bike Summits, cycling industry round tables, lobby days in Ottawa, National Advocacy Check-Ins and more, VCB facilitates dialogue in Canada on cycling, using science and evidence-based research, benchmarking, best practices and policies.

Our Priorities

We build on the successes, initiate projects to address gaps, support local advocacy and government, and advocate for more work where we need to do better. Our work is focused around the following priority areas, but definitely not limited to them.

Data and Information

To make the best decisions possible we need the best data possible. Vélo Canada Bikes identifies data gaps and develops programs to fill them. 

    • Pedal Poll/Sondo Vélo
    • National Infrastructure Census

National Active Transportation Strategy​

The 2021 announcement of the NATS was a huge success for VCB. We work to ensure that funding flows and execution is successful, We’re building tools and data to support a successful implementation of the Strategy and getting infrastructure on the ground. 

    • Active Transportation Fund
    • National Active Transportation Strategy

Infrastructure Standards

With the increased demand for safe cycling infrastructure and interest in municipalities to actually build it, it is important we have a common understanding of minimum requirements, nomenclature, and maintenance.

    • Bike land standards
    • Highway Safety 

 

Better access

Vélo Canada Bikes is always working to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to access safe and effective choices. That means identifying & working to remove barriers to cycling.
