British Columbia is the westernmost province of Canada. It is Canada’s third-most populous province with a population of approximately 5 million. Due to the province’s rugged and varying terrain, British Columbia relies on an extensive network of provincial highways to connect its communities. Many cities and towns within the province have adopted Complete Streets policies including Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna, and more.
In June 2019, British Columbia published its Active Transportation Strategy which outlines the importance of a Complete Streets approach in its mission to create safe active transportation networks. The province encourages communities to incorporate Complete Streets into their local transportation frameworks.
