The Haldimand & Norfolk Advocacy Toolkit has been developed to help individuals and organizations advocate for changes and policies to improve our communities. This step by step resource will give you the tools to refine your message, gain support and make your case to the decision makers.

This toolkit was made possible through funding from the Healthy Communities Partnership Haldimand Norfolk.

Community Support

Norfolk Pathways for People advocates for new and improved trails and pathways in Norfolk County [pathways include sidewalks, cycling paths]. Our members write letters of support and make deputations to Council in an effort to build a connected community that is safe for walking and cycling. If you have a concern in your neighbourhood, please feel free to contact us.

Norfolk County Active Transportation [AT] Strategy


Norfolk County’s Active Transportation system complements and connects existing and future off-road trails with a network of on-road cycling facilities that link people with places. The system provides residents and visitors with a continuous and connected system of facilities that are designed with safety in mind and are comfortable for active transportation users and integrated with local transit (i.e. Ride Norfolk). Pathways for People members were actively involved in the consultation phase in the development of the AT Strategy.
