The ecoMOBILITY program is helping to develop and disseminate professional and technical information on reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from urban transportation. The objective of this activity is to increase the capacity of municipalities to integrate transportation demand management (TDM) initiatives into their transportation planning and project implementation practices.
There are five main activities under capacity building.
Professional development is focused on transferring technical TDM information to practitioners to aid in their ability to plan, implement and measure the impact of projects.
Development opportunities planned for 2011-12 include:

This web site is the central dissemination point for program resources. As information on funded projects and capacity building activities are available, they are posted here.
Transport Canada also hosts the Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Resource Centre. This web-based information resource contains definitions, case study examples of various TDM projects and the TDM project data-base that quantifies project results.
These are events that help attain the program's outcomes to increase the application of green transportation. The focus is on presenting case studies and informing decision-makers and transportation practitioners of the role of TDM in reducing GHG and air pollutant emissions.
Upcoming learning events in 2011-12 include:
Case studies of successful, innovative TDM are profiled in the Case Study Library. Our newest case studies focusing on TDM projects include:
Examples of existing TDM case studies include:
These are "how-to" resources that help position TDM projects for success.
In 2010-11 the program developed:
All of these resources can be found on our Guides and Tools page.
In 2011-12 the program is supporting the development of:
ecoMOBILITY works to foster professional collaboration in the TDM sector through partnerships with organizations and governments on TDM capacity-building projects. For example, the program works with the Transportation Association of Canada and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.
Previously, ecoMOBILITY has hosted practitioner node meetings to provide opportunities for practitioner-to-practitioner exchange of program implementation best practices and lessons-learned. These meetings included:
