MTO Public Consultation on Cycling Program

Please review and comment on the Ontario government's plans to promote cycling.

[le français suit l’anglais]

Dear valued partners,

Ontario's Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP), released on June 8, 2016, committed to creating a cleaner transportation sector in Ontario, in part by promoting cycling.

The Ministry of Transportation is ready to do its part to support the CCAP by implementing a number of initiatives that support reductions to transportation emissions. These initiatives will be funded by proceeds from the province’s cap and trade program.

Through a discussion paper posted to the Environmental Registry, we are seeking your input on a proposed plan to implement actions identified in the CCAP to improve commuter cycling networks. 

We encourage you to review the discussion paper, accessible through the Environmental Registry or the Ministry’s Cycling Strategy web page and provide your comments by November 30, 2016. We look forward to hearing from you.

Chers partenaires,

Le Plan d'action de l'Ontario contre le changement climatique (PAOCC), rendu public le 8 juin 2016, s’engage à créer un secteur des transports plus propres en Ontario, et ce, notamment en faisant la promotion du vélo.

Le ministère des Transports est prêt à faire sa part pour appuyer le PAOCC en mettant en �uvre un certain nombre d’initiatives qui contribuent à la réduction des émissions liées aux transports. Ces initiatives seront financées grâce aux recettes provenant du Programme de plafonnement et d’échange de l’Ontario.

Dans un document de travail mis en ligne sur le site du Registre environnemental, nous sollicitons votre avis sur un projet de plan visant à mettre en �uvre des mesures identifiées dans le PAOCC en vue d’améliorer les réseaux cyclables pour les navetteurs. 

Nous vous encourageons à prendre connaissance du document de travail, qui peut être consulté sur le Registre environnemental ou sur la page Web du ministère consacrée à la Stratégie de promotion du vélo et fournir vos commentaires d’ici le 30 novembre 2016. Nous avons hâte de savoir ce que vous en pensez.
