Federal Government introduces $400 Million Active Transportation Fund (ATF)

The federal government is by passing the Province of Ontario and has made available $400 million ATF to accelerate active transportation, through the expansion of bicycle lanes, wider sidewalks and in many cases reduced lanes of traffic. Its objective is to improve social equity, reduce GHGs and support the Canadian economy through a reduction in congestion, the creation of construction jobs and access via active transportation modes to business. The BCNA believes that this funding will be used to reduce lanes of traffic on Yonge Street, Willowdale Ave, and support lane reductions on arterial roadways in the City.
