The National Complete Streets Coalition is excited to continue our monthly webinar series designed to help professionals from a variety of disciplines put Complete Streets principles into action. Implementation & Equity 201: The Path Forward to Complete Streets is exploring a new issue each month related to creating safer, healthier, more equitable streets.
Our next webinar, Complete Streets in Canada: Designing for change takes place on Tuesday, January 23rd from 1:00-2:00 PM EST.
National Complete Streets Coalition is focused on the development and implementation of Complete Streets in communities across the country, but the Complete Streets approach is now an international movement.
This webinar will explore the uptake of the Complete Streets approach in Canada. We will be joined by Nancy Smith Lea, Director of the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) in Ontario, Peter Murphy, an Urban Designer for Quebec City, Quebec, and Ryan Martinson, an Associate at Stantec in Calgary, Alberta. Inspired by the National Complete Streets Coalition, in 2012, TCAT launched the Complete Streets for Canada website to track and promote Complete Streets in Canada, and to provide Canadian-specific resources and research.
Nancy will provide an overview of the different policy and planning frameworks in Canada that have resulted in Complete Streets playing out in a slightly different way than in the US. Peter will describe one of Canada’s most ambitious Complete Streets policies. Finally, Ryan, an engineer who works in both countries, will provide the technical perspective.
Registration for the webinar is now open. We hope you’ll be able to join us!
