Stakeholder Reports

Montreal 2019: Report to Stakeholders

As part of the Plan Montreal durable 2016-2021, the City, along with about 230 partner organizations, will implement interventions that aim to improve the urban environment. INTERACT is interested in the impact of these interventions, including traffic calming measures, changes in transport infrastructure and greening programs. How can these changes in our neighborhoods have an impact on our health at a larger scale?

This report summarizes the results of wave 1 of the INTERACT cohort in the Montreal area. Find out what people think of the changes happening in their neighborhood.

Vancouver 2019: Report to Stakeholders

INTERACT and the Active Aging Research Team are leading an ongoing study on how the development of Vancouver’s Arbutus Greenway is impacting physical activity, social participation, and well-being of nearby residents, and whether these impacts are felt equally across different socioeconomic groups.

Here, we focus on who is using the Greenway, and the experiences of older adults (aged 65+ years). Find out what they thought of the Greenway, and how they plan to use it in the future.

Victoria - Wave 1: Report to Stakeholders

INTERACT has launched a five-year study to uncover how the implementation of the All Ages & Abilities (AAA) Bicycle Network is impacting physical activity, social participation, and well-being. In 2017, we recruited over 300 adults who bicycle at least once per month in the City of Victoria.

Here, we focus on findings from the qualitative arm of our study, where we interviewed 25 participants who live in the City of Victoria. Three main themes arose from our interviews about how community design impacts health: neighbourhood attachment, social connectivity, and well-being.
