OTTAWA, Ont. – Eleven projects designed to contribute to a more environmentally friendly transportation system have been selected to receive funding under the Moving on Sustainable Transportation program.

Jim Karygiannis, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Transport, on behalf of Transport Minister Jean C. Lapierre, has announced that the selected projects will receive funding totalling $407,000. These projects represent many initiatives from launching a cycle to work challenge to developing a mobile facility capable of processing waste vegetable oil into biodiesel fuel.

“These projects demonstrate the wide range of possibilities that exist for developing more sustainable transportation in Canada,” said Karygiannis. “They also provide an important benchmark for other communities looking for innovative ways of reducing the impact of transportation on their environment.”

Since it began in 1999, the Moving on Sustainable Transportation program has funded 73 projects aimed at encouraging sustainable transportation practices among Canadians.
