Active Switch Program

Think twice about using the car with the Active Switch online tool by opting to use healthy and active travel options for daily trips.

The tool allows users to set goals, track active travel, monitor progress and converts the distance travelled to illustrate the amount of calories you have burned and greenhouse gas emissions you have saved. Plus, you will be entered to win great monthly prizes!

If you are an employee at a participating workplace, visit the Active Switch Workplace Program website.

If you are a faculty member, staff member, or student at a participating post-secondary institution, visit the Active Switch Campus Program website.
