Using cutting-edge technology and tools, INTERACT is conducting natural experiment studies on major changes in urban form in four Canadian cities (a multiuse greenway in Vancouver, a sustainable development plan in Montreal, a bicycle network in Victoria, and Bus Rapid Transit in Saskatoon). Applying an integrated knowledge translation approach in each city, INTERACT aims to: (1) understand context of urban interventions; (2) measure change in urban form; (3) analyze impact of interventions on health, wellbeing, and social inequalities; (4) mobilize knowledge to guide future decision making on urban change.
