Our Priorities

Canada Bikes is a growing and dynamic organization providing a strong national voice for everyday cycling in Canada.

Our vision is straightforward: We envision a Canada where people of all ages and abilities can cycle safely, conveniently and enjoyably to/from/within any community in the country.

We have identified two high priority strategies to help Canada achieve this goal: the adoption of a national cycling policy for Canada and the creation of a federal cycling infrastructure fund.

Why? We know that the many far-reaching benefits of cycling clearly justify the rapid construction of the quality infrastructure networks that guarantee safety and convenience.  Countless opinion surveys have made it clear that Canadians will use it.  Finally, we know that countries that enact the right mix of coordinated policy and funding at the highest level become countries where riding a bicycle is both safe and popular.  Cycling in Canada is ripe for a meteoric rise.

Bike Day in Canada 2017

Thank you to everyone who participated in the first annual National Bike Summit.

On June 1st, 2017, Canada Bikes, with support from Mountain Equipment Co- op (MEC), The Co-operators, the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA), and in partnership with Senator Nancy Greene Raine and “National Health and Fitness Day”, convened the first Canadian National Bike Summit on Parliament Hill. There was a full-house of 90 delegates attending by invitation, and a further 200+ people or organizations participating via a live webinar link from coast-to-coast-to-coast.

Canada Bikes is a federal not-for-profit corporation established in 2012. The organization consists of representatives from cycling organizations across Canada as well as active transportation and sustainable mobility professionals who have come together for common causes: to get more Canadians cycling, be it for transportation, recreation or touring, to get more urban and rural bicycle infrastructure built that enables and supports this, and to facilitate dialogue in Canada on cycling, using science and evidence-based national and international research, benchmarking, best practices and policies.
