Grants to Toronto, Ontario registered charities to promote and develop local cycling programs and infrastructure. Funding is intended for research, analysis of public policy, public education, networking, community organizing, and other efforts that advance and build on recent cycling commitments in Toronto. Funding priority will be given to proposals focused on accelerating the implementation of Toronto’s Ten-Year Cycling Network Plan.

The goal of Cycle City is to help build a constituency and a culture that support cycling in Toronto. Whether through bike lanes or bike parking, bike programs or bike access, there is much work to be done to make Toronto an exemplary city for cycling. There are also many benefits to be realized including affordable and environmentally friendly transportation, active and healthy lifestyles, safe streets for all road users, and prosperous local economies.
