About

Walk Toronto is a grassroots pedestrian advocacy group that works with various levels of government, as well as with private property owners, to improve walking conditions and safety in Toronto. 

Mission Statement

Walk Toronto advocates for and inspires walking — in the interest of health benefits, cleaner air, and vibrant neighbourhoods. We are dedicated to making Toronto a better city for pedestrians, by promoting walking as a serious transportation option and striving to create safe, accessible, interesting and amenity-rich pedestrian environments across the city.

 

Steering Committee

Our Steering Committee is made up of 19 passionate advocates for walkable streets. You can find out more about them here. In the future, we may wish to add new capabilities to the Steering Committee.  If you are interested in such opportunities, you can email a short letter of interest to: application@walktoronto.ca and we will review it when a space opens up. 

Word on the Street

"The casual indifference to pedestrian safety has to end; a very important initiative and badly needed." – Ken Greenberg (architect and urban designer) about the founding of Walk Toronto
