Take Action

Ensuring that all children and youth benefit from health promoting schools that include quality physical and health education programs is an important step in ensuring their optimal healthy development. All children deserve to learn in an environment that is supportive, healthy and that provides the opportunities that they need to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and habits that are necessary to lead healthy and active lives. Often those schools who provide such an environment have been championed by a person or group of people who not only understand the importance, but use their voice to advocates to make it happen – whether it is supportive government officials, school administrators, teachers, parents, public health officials, or concerned citizens.

We need you to take action – it is the power of all of us that will see more and more schools across Canada being recognized for their quality physical and health education programs, and ensuring a future generation of active, healthy Canadians.
