PHE Canada to Develop an Online Physical Literacy Training Program!

Thursday, January 26, 2017


On January 17th, the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) announced that PHE Canada has been granted seed funding to support the development of an online physical literacy training program.
With initial funding from Sport Canada, PHE Canada developed a series of in-person physical literacy workshops to help teachers, coaches, and recreational leads gain a better understanding of physical literacy and implement quality programming. Despite the delivery of over 100 workshops and the training of over 4,000 front line staff, the demand for PHE Canada’s workshops has continued to exceed our delivery capabilities. This OTF funding will enable PHE Canada to meet the demand and busy schedules of interested agents, thereby increasing the capacity of front line staff, quality of programming, and the physical activity levels of children and youth.
