Canada supports climate education and awareness by Clean Air Partnership
“I am inspired by the initiatives being brought forward by Canadians from coast-to-coast. These initiatives will help others to both be better informed and take positive action to tackle climate change. This funding is supporting our full-time students, youth and both non-profit and for-profit organizations to make a difference. Together, we’re sharing great ideas that will help raise awareness about the importance of taking action on climate change right now.”
– Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change
“While Markham has high transportation fuel emissions, it also has the potential for increasing cycling. The Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) at Clean Air Partnership is thrilled to have the opportunity to tap into Markham’s potential to increase cycling for everyday trips and to work with our partners to engage the community in tangible climate action.”
– Nancy Smith Lea, Director, The Centre for Active Transportation (Clean Air Partnership)
The goal of the project is to create cycling hubs in suburban Canadian communities.
The Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) __a project of the Clean Air Partnership registered charity__ will develop partnerships with local organizations interested in becoming a “Community Bike Hub.” These hubs will offer access to bicycles, tools, workshops and repair clinics.
The Climate Action Fund supports initiatives that help bring new ideas and innovations to help tackle climate change and encourage climate action. This supports Canada’s climate plan objectives by making investments in climate solutions.
