WalkABle Alberta

In January 2018 WalkABle Alberta re-connected with each community that participated in WalkABle Alberta through telephone interviews to learn about the progress made since the community visit. Comments and recommendations collected from the interviews were compiled into broader themes and can be viewed in A Summary of Community Interviews.

In February 2018 WalkABle Alberta provided an academic poster presentation at the Active Living Research Conference in Banff Alberta. You can view The WalkABle Alberta program: Informed change to community walkability in Alberta.
