Ontario’s Cycling Strategy looks ahead 20 years and outlines what needs to be done to promote cycling across the province as a viable mode of transportation.


More and more people are choosing cycling as their preferred way to get around. Ontario’s Cycling Strategy provides a route map to support and encourage this growth in cycling over the next 20 years.


Increasing the number of cyclists in Ontario holds many potential long-term benefits. Ontario’s Cycling Strategy supports Ontarians adopting healthier and active lifestyles, the tourism industry, as well as the achievement of environmental and economic objectives.


The province will play a leadership role in striving to achieve our cycling vision, but we are asking municipalities, the public, road users, businesses and non-governmental organizations to partner with us to create a more cycling-friendly future for Ontario.

Taking action now to improve cycling

Ontario is taking action to implement #CycleON: Ontario’s Cycling Strategy through a series of ongoing, multi-year action plans. The first, #CycleON Action Plan 1.0, identifies clear actions that Ontario government ministries and agencies will be working on in 2014 and beyond to make Ontario a more cycling-friendly province. This is the first of many actions plans. The cumulative effect will be to help all of us – individuals, communities and governments – reap the benefits of increased cycling.
