Active Communities


"We all benefit from being active – whether being
physically active or active in the community. "



Strategic Priorities for Outcome Two:

Encourage collaborative planning for facilities and services.

Work with partners to identify and share approaches in communities that capitalize on ethnic diversity, urban and rural distinctiveness, and mobilize industry to develop active communities.

Encourage local governments to create opportunities, and remove barriers to physical activity.

Work with partners to identify and implement best practices in land use and transportation planning to facilitate active transportation (walking, cycling).

Explore opportunities for tourism development around sport event hosting (e.g. games, tournaments)
