Canada National Bike Summit Ottawa

Building on the success of the 1st Canadian National Bike Summit, this event will bring together cycling and active transportation stakeholders from across the country, so that together, we can take tangible steps towards building a bike friendly Canada. The National Bike Summit is much more than a conference about bikes, it is a gathering of stakeholders and decision makers from across Canada. Learn and discuss the benefits of investing in accessible infrastructure to discover how to move the needle on cycling in your own community and how it easily (and affordably) fits in to federal, provincial and municipal goals on several fronts. The summit takes place in Ottawa on May 28th-29th 2018 and registration is now open!

Summit Objectives:

  • Demonstrate the need and importance of Federal leadership to advance everyday cycling in Canada
  • Mobilize cycling stakeholders to work together to achieve a bike and active transportation friendly Canada
  • Meet with Parliamentarians and elected officials from all levels of government and discuss cycling

  • This is very interesting, but I see no content whatsoever in French, which is very odd as they could definitely get Federal funding for translation and interpretation. I want to share it with several of my elected officials here, and while I think all of them speak English as well, they should have access to material and to the right to intervene in their own language. (I feel the same about Indigenous languages as well, but that is a battle that is just beginning).

      You bring up an en excellent point Maria! Providing Canadian specific content in French would be a great, especially when it’s a matter of national interest. We will see what we can do for future posts!
