  • Increasing Cycling for Transportation in Canadian Communities: Understanding what works

    A major study on how some communities in Canada have managed to increase bicycle use and what can be learned from this experience that might help others follow suit. The study will identify 10 neighbourhoods and towns for detailed case study in order to draw lessons as to what works in different urban contexts and regions of Canada. The study will also assess the cost of various measures to increase bicycle use and provide recommendations on how communities can best invest their limited resources for the greatest impact. This study is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and is being led by Beth Savan at the University of Toronto.

  • From Urban Dispersion to Recentralization: Lessons from Canadian Planning Initiatives

    This study will focus on neighbourhoods and districts in Canadian cities that have managed to increase their densities and range of land uses in recent years in an attempt to determine the most promising paths to "recentralization". Twelve case studies will explore barriers and successful implementation strategies in order to point to practical recommendations for moving forward. This study is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and is being led by Pierre Filion at the University of Waterloo.
