While Saanich’s Active Transportation Plan includes a Vision Zero target, it stops short of adopting Vision Zero as the primary guiding principle. On January 10, 2022, city councillors voted unanimously to ask staff to report back on options to cut the timeline for their Active Transportation Plan in half to 15 years to implement a Vision Zero plan more quickly to protect vulnerable road users.  According to city council, accelerating the active transportation plan and developing a Vision Zero strategy in tandem will fundamentally change the way that residents live and increase the livability of Saanich’s communities.
