In recognition of the importance of cycling and the needs of cyclists, Fitness Canada, a directorate within the federal Ministry of Fitness and Amateur Sport, established the Canadian Task Force on Cycling. Led by the Canadian Cycling Association, the task force has prepared the "Community Cycling Manual", a guide for planning, design, and construction of bicycle facilities. The objectives of the project were to establish the concept of the bicycle as a valid means of transportation, undertake activities to increase participation in cycling, enhance public awareness of cycling as both a recreational and utilitarian activity, and provide a safe environment for cyclists across Canada.
