Complete Streets for Canada

policy and design hub for building safe and inviting streets for all

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Complete Streets Approach

The Regional Municipal Planning Strategy (2014) states that one of its objectives is to: 

  • "Design complete streets for all ages, abilities, and modes of travel" (p.59).

At the Complete Streets Forum in 2014, Ali Shaver, Planning Facilitator, Capital District Health Authority, gave a presentation describing the collaborative process undertaken to achieve this level support.

A number of street improvement projects undertaken by the city make reference to Complete Street principles (for example, Devonshire Ave), but as of yet, no comprehensive Complete Streets policy has been set in place.
