The Ontario Government is currently soliciting public feedback on the Ministry of Transportation's Cycling Strategy, which has the following three goals:
The MTO first released a cycling strategy in 1992 with the goal of encouraging more cycling across the province. After 20 years, "the time has come to have a refreshed approach to encourage cycling in the province and ensure the safety of all road users."
The 2012 Ontario Coroner's Report on Cycling recommended that the Province develop an Ontario Cycling Plan to help guide policy development and to encourage cities to adopt a "complete streets" approach that focuses on the safety of all street users.
