The key objectives of the program are to measure the impact of changes to the urban form on physical activity, social participation, and well-being, and inequalities in these outcomes. The secondary objective is to create and refine methodological tools that will be used for intersectoral urban form and health research.

The program will be looking at four investments in four separate cities: the Arbutus Greenway in Vancouver, #Biketoria in Victoria, the Bus Rapid Transit in Saskatoon and the Montreal Community 2016-2020 sustainability plan.

The INTERACT team is composed of uniquely positioned researchers including Yan Kestens (Université de Montréal), who holds a CIHR Chair in Urban Interventions and Population Health; Meghan Winters (Simon Fraser University), who holds a Michael Smith foundation for Health Research Scholar for a program on population health intervention research, and Daniel Fuller, who currently holds a Canada Research Chair in Population Physical Activity.
