Active Albertans

Active Albertans


"Being active isn't just essential for a high quality of life,
it is essential to life itself."



Strategic Priorities for Outcome One:

Working with partners, encourage and improve opportunities for children and families to engage in high quality, unstructured, and creative play.

Working with partners, increase levels of physical activity of Albertans of all ages and abilities across their lifespan and in diverse settings (e.g. homes, schools, workplaces) by sharing knowledge, supporting physical literacy and encouraging participation opportunities.

Through effective communication, including social marketing, increase awareness among all Albertans about how and where they can be active.

Support the integration of the Canadian Sport for Life model into the education, recreation, active living and sport development systems.

Work with partners to develop innovative, accessible after school programs that link community recreation programs and services to schools and community facilities.

Encourage school communities to adopt a comprehensive school health approach to promote healthy, active living.

What will success look like in ten years?

More Albertans are physically active in a wide variety of ways, and in many different settings.

More Albertans experience improved physical and mental health through integrating physical activity into their daily lives.

Affordable, accessible opportunities for physical activity are available to all Albertans.

Increased participation in recreation, active living and sport leads to social benefits, healthy weights and improved resiliency.
