TBay On The Move!
2023 Active Commute Challenge - Is Now Over!
Hey Thunder Bay and District, the Active Commute Challenge (ACC) has wrapped up! The 2023 Challenge was a huge success that saw us travel a total of 22,281km for the month of June! By switching out our vehicles we also reduced 4,712kg of greenhouse gas emissions! Both those totals also beat our totals from last year – way to go everyone! We hope many of you will continue to actively commute to work even after this challenge has ended.
We’re sad the ACC is over, but we look forward to seeing you join our other challenges throughout the year! Check out this page for upcoming challenges!
Active Commute Challenge Workplace Champion Webinar
The Active Commute Challenge (ACC) is back for June 2023! Workplace champions help spread the word for the ACC and are vital to recruit and motivate team members! If you’re interested in becoming a workplace champion, then you’re invited to attend our free webinar on May 25 @ 10:30-11:30am.
By attending this free webinar, you’ll learn:
- the benefits of actively commuting to work and the role of the workplace

- what local active commuters have to say about their experiences
You’ll also hear from our keynote speaker, Sawyer Jonker. Sawyer is a graduate student from University of Waterloo who is an active transportation enthusiast and has also lived in Thunder Bay.
