May 24, 2024 – Mobilizing Justice (MJ) is a multi-disciplinary and multi-sector partnership that builds sustainable connections for research and knowledge exchange to address transportation inequities in Canada. This national partnership aims to understand and address transportation equity in Canada and to improve the well-being of Canadians at risk of transport burdens (i.e., where socio-economic marginalization combines with transportation barriers to mutually reinforce problems in peoples’ lives, preventing them from accessing what they need).

As part of our work, MJ collaborated with Esri Canada to create an online Transportation Equity Dashboard that leverages spatial accessibility measures in an interactive map tool. The tool captures differences in access to daily needs (e.g., employment, grocery stores, and education) using sustainable transportation modes (e.g., walking, cycling, and transit) across Canada, employing an equity lens to enable communities, researchers, urban planners, and decision-makers to explore, analyze, and advocate for transportation equity. 

Through this webinar, you’ll gain insight into the dashboard’s development and features. Our presenters will walk you through a demonstration of how it works, and you’ll hear from practitioners and researchers about how they’re using the dashboard and data in their projects. Come learn more about this innovative and practical tool!
