We are pursuing the process of renewing the strategic plan entitled Pathway Network for Canada’s Capital Region (2006). The purpose of the revised plan will be to provide a framework for future planning and day-to-day management of the Capital Pathway.
The main planning objectives:
The strategic plan revision will address various topics:
The renewal will take place in four stages, during which the public and stakeholders will be consulted.
Assessment, research and analysis of existing conditions (summer–fall 2017)
Review of vision and strategic directions (winter–spring 2018)
Drafting of new strategic plan (summer 2018–winter 2019)
Approval of the final plan (summer 2019)
Whether cross-country skiing just to enjoy being active, biking around to discover the National Capital Region, or walking to get from point A to point B: there are lots of good reasons to take the Capital Pathway.
In 2006, the NCC Board of Directors approved the current plan developed in collaboration with its regional partners. This plan includes four pillars to guide the planning and development of the Capital Pathway for the next 10 years.
The Capital Pathway covers Canada’s Capital Region in its entirety. It is a multi-use recreational and tourist network, which also supports non-motorized commuting vocations.
The Capital Pathway extends to and links natural and built areas by providing access to waterways and green spaces, as well as cultural and heritage features.
User education and awareness programs promoting sharing of the pathway in a respectful and tolerant manner result in a safe and pleasant experience.
The Capital Pathway is connected to other non-motorized transportation networks within the region to encourage sustainable transportation, and forms a key component of Canada’s Capital recreational and cycling experience.
The quality of the experience is regarded as one of the best in North America.
