Elizabeth Allingham

“North American cities are building momentum to address mobility challenges. But there is so much left to do! I’m excited to support cities in Canada and the United States using practical and innovative ideas from the Netherlands to create local solutions.”

An enthusiastic team player on the path to more liveable cities, Elizabeth enjoys working with a variety of stakeholders to implement action on sustainable mobility. She has more than 14 years of experience managing projects, building partnerships and developing programs. Her broad experience is the result of working in the public, nonprofit and private sectors. During her time at the Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA) and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), Elizabeth developed a keen awareness of the challenges and opportunities facing municipal governments.

Now supporting North America as Director, she enables collaboration between clients and partners in North America and Europe. Elizabeth helps clients to access some of the innovative solutions already working in countries like The Netherlands and Denmark. At the same time, Elizabeth remains rooted in the North American reality aware that European expertise is most useful when it is used to develop a localized solution with local partners. Elizabeth focuses on shared interests such as safety for all road users. Through solutions uniting “hardware” or infrastructure and “software” such as education and outreach, Elizabeth seeks to create mobility systems that support great spaces for people.

Elizabeth was first introduced to Dutch bicycle culture while living in The Netherlands for a year during high school. Returning to Canada with a new perspective on the relationship between cities, mobility and quality of life, Elizabeth was inspired to earn degrees in Sociology and Community Economic Development. Elizabeth lives in Ottawa, Canada and is a proud resident of Hintonburg where she lives with her husband and two young daughters. As a parent, she is conscious of the need to design streets in a way that accommodates all road-users, especially children.
