Creating a World-Class Pedestrian City

“Ottawa wants to transform itself into a world-class pedestrian city where people walk year-round,” says Tanya Stuart, Communications Coordinator for Green Communities Canada. Having achieved significant progress towards this goal, Ottawa was recognized with a silver designation in 2013 under GCC’s WALK Friendly communities program.

Praiseworthy initiatives include updates to the Ottawa Pedestrian Plan, pre- and post-evaluations of road projects and traffic-calming plans, and community engagement.

Key features of the Plan include the Pedestrian Facilities Program, the Intersection Accessibility Program, the Development Sidewalk Program, the Sidewalk Rehabilitation Program, the Audible Signals Program, and the Countdown Signals Program.
