Welcome! The Active Transportation Peer Learning Network (ATPLN) is a space for ChooseWell champions to come together to share their ideas, skills, and experiences on how to improve active transportation within their communities.
What is “active transportation” and why is it important?
Active transportation is any form of human powered travel, as defined by the Public Health Agency of Canada. Examples include, but are not limited to walking, using a non-mechanized wheelchair, biking, skateboarding, and snowshoeing. Active transportation can reduce the risk of developing chronic health problems, boost the local economy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and prevent injuries. Learn more about the benefits of active transportation here.
