As part of our ongoing commitment to champion walking and accessibility across the region, we will be keeping this new site active, with current projects and articles of interest, as well as invitations to local seminars and lectures. We invite you to visit the site often, and look forward to seeing you when you are next in the Vancouver region.
The Walk Metro Vancouver Society was incepted in 2010 to advocate for enhanced walkability and pedestrian safety, comfort. The Society promotes walkable and accessible environments with visual interest throughout Metro Vancouver.
Originally forming to host the successful international Walk 21 Conference held at Simon Fraser University in October 2011, the society is now committed to championing walking and accessibility across the region.
The Board of Directors is composed of people from the Health Authorities, Metro Vancouver Municipalities, and the Universities. The steering committee which hosted the conference included representatives from the Greater Vancouver Regional District, TransLink, the two Health Authorities, the municipalities of Metro Vancouver, and the two universities.
The website www.walkmetrovan.ca stays active with current projects and articles of interest, as well as invitations to local seminars and lectures which champion walkability. Walk Metro Vancouver in 2016 will be focusing on Pedestrian Advocacy with Seniors, who often use walking as their main mode of transportation on a daily basis.
