A week-long challenge that encourages Canadians to choose active and sustainable commutes
Every year in June, over 20,000 Canadians participate in greening their commute during this week-long challenge.
Workplaces and individuals explore sustainable commuting options that benefit people and the planet, such as; walking, running, wheeling, cycling, rollerblading, taking transit, carpooling, and telecommuting.

For Our Planet
Commuting by car is the largest single source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Manitoba. GHG emissions are the leading cause of climate change and air pollution.
For Our Health
Less than half of all Manitobans get enough physical activity. Using sustainable transportation allows people to incorporate physical activity into their daily routines.
For Our Wallet
The average cost to own and operate a vehicle can range from $8,500 – $11,500 or higher each year based on the typical 18,000 km driven. Choose alternative modes to save money.
