Dear Mayor Watson,

The Ontario Government has committed to funding new cycling infrastructure through the Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling program (OMCC). All Ontario municipalities are eligible, with $42.5M available in the first year. In 2013, the City of Ottawa released a detailed cycling plan that would improve commuter infrastructure for cyclists, and entice more people to start biking. With support from OMCC funding, the Ottawa Cycling Plan can be realized.

We, the undersigned, call on Ottawa to apply for funding through the OMCC program. Let’s get our fair share, and make it easier to bike to work in Ottawa!


Cher Maire Watson,

Le gouvernement de l'Ontario s'est engagé à financer de nouvelles infrastructures cyclistes par le biais du Programme de cyclisme municipal de la Commune de l'Ontario (OMCC). Toutes les municipalités de l'Ontario sont éligibles, avec 42,5 millions de dollars disponibles dans la première année. En 2013, la Ville d'Ottawa a lancé un plan cycliste détaillé qui améliorerait l'infrastructure des banlieues pour les cyclistes et inciterait davantage de personnes à commencer à faire du vélo. Avec le soutien du financement de l'OMCC, le Plan cycliste d'Ottawa peut être réalisé.

Nous, soussignés, appelons Ottawa à faire une demande de financement par le biais du programme OMCC. Obtenons notre juste part et facilitons le vélo comme moyen de transport pour se rendre au travail à Ottawa!

Bike infrastructure is essential to the growth of Ottawa. In addition to more lanes we could use more bike racks.
