Walking has been called the activity of a lifetime because it's something that we can do our whole life. Walking is good for the body, good for the mind, and your community. People walking make a place feel more alive and vibrant and actually makes a neighbourhood safer.

Why a walkable community?

EcoSuperior Environmental Programs actively promotes and encourages us to get walking more. View the benefits of a walkable community!

Walkability committee

The Thunder Bay District Health Unit has been working hard to make Thunder Bay a better place to walk. They have pulled together community partners, community members, and City staff to form the Thunder Bay Walkability Committee. Learn all about the great work the committee does and see more of Walkable Thunder Bay on Facebook!

Walkable Thunder Bay

Walking is the most popular physical activity in Canada. And why not? It's low-impact, affordable, and reduces stress. There are many ways to support a more walkable Thunder Bay including walks, events, fitness, and advocacy and education.
