Complete Streets Catalogue

In December 2014, TCAT released an online catalogue of Complete Streets projects in the Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH). ‘The Complete Streets Catalogue: Understanding Complete Streets in the Greater Golden Horseshoe Region’ features projects from 19 municipalities that reflect the diversity of Complete Streets approaches being implemented by municipalities across the region.

The catalogue uses examples to illustrate how the notion of Complete Streets is being applied by municipalities as part of Growth Plan policy implementation. The data is presented in an easy-to navigate and accessible way so that municipalities seeking to implement their own Complete Streets strategies can refer to existing examples and tailor approaches for their own needs. The catalogue includes:

  • A quick reference checklist of the components of featured Complete Streets projects,
  • Comprehensive descriptions of the projects with details of the interventions that were implemented, 
  • Several case studies that reflect the diversity of Complete Streets approaches in the region.

The catalogue was produced during the first phase of a research projected funded by the Places to Grow Implementation Fund.  Between 2014-2016, TCAT worked with Dr. Raktim Mitra at Ryerson University and Dr. Paul Hess at the University of Toronto to develop tools aimed at improving the capacity of GGH municipalities to plan and evaluate transportation infrastructure, particularly around active transportation.  Other projects completed include the Complete Streets Evaluation Tool, and Complete Street Transformations.  

Read profiles of Simcoe Street (Toronto), and Square One Drive (Mississauga), two examples of Complete Streets included in the Catalogue.
