The Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) invites you to join us at our 5th annual active transportation conference, the Complete Streets Forum, on April 23, 2012 at Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto. Register today to take advantage of early bird pricing!
The Complete Streets Forum shares research, best practices, and creative solutions for designing and implementing safe and inviting streets for everyone. The conference will provide numerous opportunities to learn from, consult, and network with professionals with Complete Streets experience across North America.
The goal of this year’s Forum is to accelerate the implementation of Complete Streets across Canada. The program will cover the policy, design, and community consultation required to build complete streets. You will hear from leading experts on active transportation including:
· Dan Burden, Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Walkable and Livable Communities Institute
· John LaPlante, P.E., PTOE, VP and Director of Traffic Engineering, T.Y. Lin International
· Gary Toth, Senior Director, Transportation Initiatives, Project for Public Spaces
TCAT is also excited to announce first accredited Complete Streets Workshop in Canada, in partnership with complete streets movement founders, the National Complete Streets Coalition. This hands-on parallel track to the Forum is limited to 40 participants so register now.
TCAT is arranging multi-modal transportation options to Evergreen Brick Works. BIXI Toronto is providing a BIXI station at Evergreen for one day only. Join our group bike ride, walking tour, carpool, or shuttle.
This exceptional line-up of speakers, break-out sessions, workshops, and networking opportunities, and inspiring venue, is an event not to be missed! Visit www.tcat.ca/completestreetsforum2012/ for more information.
