This is the Web site for the now-concluded project entitled: Child and Youth Friendly Land Use and Transport Planning: Guidelines and Literature Review.

This project was conducted for the Centre for Sustainable Transportation at the University of Winnipeg. It was funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada.

The project began in November 2007 and continued until March 2010. Its main objective was to develop sets of guidelines for municipal transportation and land-use planners, one set for each of Canada’s ten provinces.

The Guidelines have been developed as tools for achieving transportation and land-use arrangements that meet the needs of children and youth — and everyone else.

If we can build a successful city for children we will have a successful city for all people.
