Active Neighbourhoods Canada is a partnership of organizations across Canada using participatory design towards the goal of green, active and healthy neighbourhoods.

Our shared vision of a green, active and healthy neighbourhood is a neighbourhood redesigned to celebrate the active use of shared public space; including roads and parks.These neighbourhoods support walking, cycling and other means of active transportation for everyone, paying particular attention to children, by providing safe and welcoming urban design.

They foster community linkages, encourage a connection with natural systems and allow citizens to develop a sense of belonging.
