Over half of adults in Toronto are born outside of Canada. In 2008 the Toronto Cyclists Union [http://bikeunion.to] teamed up with CultureLink Settlement Services [http://culturelink.ca] to form the Partnership for Integration and Sustainable Transportation. Our goals: to encourage newcomers to take up cycling in their new home, and to get involved to make Toronto a great cycling city!
This video celebrates the 2010 publication of the Toronto Cyclists Handbook. The Handbook is available in 16 bilingual editions (English plus Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, French, Hindi, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Tamil, Urdu and Vietnamese.) It's an important outreach tool for the Toronto Cyclists Union, and a great resource for newcomers to Toronto.
The publication of the Handbook has been funded by the Toronto Community Foundation [http://tcf.ca] and Mountain Equipment Co-operative [http://mec.ca]. The Partnership also acknowledges the support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation [http://trilliumfoundation.org], the Bicycle Trade Association of Canada [http://btac.org], and Live Green Toronto [http://toronto.ca/livegreen].
