About this Event

The BC Active Transportation Summit will gather leaders, stakeholders, and advocates from government, industry, academia and non-profit sectors to explore how to make active transportation safe and convenient for people of all ages and abilities throughout BC.

Attendees will leave with practical ideas and knowledge for creating communities that are safe and accessible for walking, cycling, and wheeling year round.
