Organization Description: 

'''Commuter Challenge''' is a national, week long event in Canada and is hosted by Sustainable Alberta Association.  It is held annually during Canadian Environment Week. Formatted as a friendly competition between workplaces and Canadian municipalities, the Commuter Challenge is designed to encourage participants to track their sustainable commute modes of transportation including walking, jogging, cycling, in-line skating, taking transit, carpooling and teleworking. The event has a strong workplace focus where employers promote the event in-house to support their employees in leaving their cars at home.
