Active Transportation PlanningUnion of British Columbia Municipalities
Local governments play a significant role in active transportation by developing integrated community land use and transportation plans and policies that lead to the implementation of transportation infrastructure networks. The intent of the Active Transportation Planning program is to support local governments to incorporate or enhance active transportation components of formal planning documents (Official Community Plan, Sustainability Plan, Neighbourhood Plan, or Transportation Plan), including research, consultation, and policy development.1

Note: regional districts can apply for one or more electoral areas with a combined population of up to 25,000 in a single application; • Do not have an active transportation plan or have a plan over 5 years old;
The Active Transportation Planning program can contribute a maximum of 100% of the cost of eligible activities to a maximum of $20,000.
