Spring 2022 is bringing a lot of exciting changes to Stuckless Consulting Inc. Over the past few months I've wrapped up several major projects, teamed up with new partners & sub-consultants, and onboarded awesome new clients. But the biggest change of all for both myself and Stuckless Consulting Inc. is expected to arrive at the end of spring - my first child!
Needless to say, it's been a busy couple of months. Continue reading below for more information on our exciting spring plans!

Below are a few items that I think that you might find interesting:
  • Pedal Poll / Sondo Vélo is a national bike count hosted by Vélo Canada Bikes (VCB). The count is taking place in communities across Canada from June 7 - 12, and VCB is currently seeking volunteer counters. Volunteers observe cyclists at specified locations and collect data on who is biking, and where.
  • Applications for the 2022 Ontario Community Changemakers fellowship are now open! The fellowship is a micro-grant program for young civic innovators with bold ideas to activate public space, enhance engagement, and foster social inclusion. The program, now in its second year, is powered by 8 80 Cities and funded by Balsam Foundation. Applications are now being accepted until June 19, 2022 from people between the ages of 19 to 35 residing in the Province of Ontario.
  • Ontario's next provincial election is coming up, and Cycle Toronto has released a series of priorities to make meaningful change for cycling at the provincial level. These priorities include passing Bill 54: Vulnerable Road Users Law, providing secure bike storage at transit stations, developing a provincial Vision Zero Plan, and more. Check out the full list of priorities and keep them in mind as you engage with candidates at your doorstep, at debates, and while hosting all-candidate bike rides.
  • The North American Bikeshare & Scootershare Association (NABSA) will be hosting their annual conference October 25-27, 2022 in Guadalajara, Mexico. I've had the opportunity to attend the NABSA Conference for the past four years (twice in person and twice virtually), and it is an amazing learning and networking experience for people working in the shared micromobility sector, or wanting to learn more. A great way to participate is to attend as a speaker, and the call for presentation proposals is currently open until May 10th.
  • The City of Vancouver, in partnership with HUB Cycling and the Vancouver School Board, recently announced that HUB Cycling's Ride the Road bike safety course will be expanded to all grade 6 and 7 students in Vancouver public schools! The program is expected to be delivered at 37 schools this year, up from the previous six schools per year. Congratulations to HUB Cycling on this expansion!
  • Did you know that Nova Scotia's Environmental Goals and Climate Change Reduction Act includes a goal to complete core active transportation networks that are accessible for all ages and abilities in 65% of the Province's communities by 2030? This ambitious goal is accompanied by the related goal of establishing a Provincial Active Transportation strategy to increase active transportation options by 2023. As highlighted in an analysis by the Ecology Action Centre, it is encouraging to see active travel included in the province's environmental goals, but there is still much work ahead.
  • In other provincial-level news, British Columbia's 2022 Budget includes a commitment to make grants totalling $30 million available to local governments to improve active transportation infrastructure, like bike lanes and multi-use pathways.
