Participating in the annual Commuter Challenge is free, fun, and gives you a chance to win some amazing prizes from local businesses!

At a time when our business community could use some extra support, we are pleased to be purchasing many of these prizes to help do our part to give back to the businesses who have given to us so generously in the past. Our prize selection may be smaller this year, but we hope you will still be motivated to take sustainable trips, whether you are commuting or visiting your favourite local businesses.

To be eligible, register yourself as an employee or as an individual and log your sustainable kilometres during the week of May 31 – June 6, 2020.

There are so many great prizes up for grabs, check them all out below!
