About Walk Toronto

Walk Toronto is a grassroots pedestrian advocacy group that works with various levels of government, community groups and citizens to improve walking conditions and safety in Toronto.

Mission Statement

Walk Toronto advocates for and inspires walking — in the interest of health benefits, cleaner air, and vibrant neighbourhoods.

We are dedicated to making Toronto a better city for pedestrians by promoting walking as a serious transportation option and striving to create safe, accessible, interesting and amenity-rich pedestrian environments across the city.
