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. Based on a vision of long-term “liveability”, these neighbourhoods are designed collectively. They foster community linkages, encourage a connection with natural systems and allow citizens to develop a sense of belonging.
