Canada's Physical Activity Guide to Healthy Active Living

Research indicated that Canadians were unaware that physical inactivity is a serious risk factor for premature death, chronic disease and disability, a magnitude of risk comparable to that of smoking. The Guide provides a rainbow of physical activities that can help you have more energy, move more easily, and get stronger. For more information, visit the Health Canada website.

Coaching Association of Canada

The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) has published a collection articles called the Canadian Journal of Women in Coaching. Introduced in 2000, the Canadian Journal for Women in Coaching provides timely, accurate, targeted information to aid in creating a healthier and more positive environment for women coaches – in Canada and around the world.


Social and economic barriers prevent some young people from participating in organized sport. Provincial and territorial sport federations have created KidSport to help overcome these obstacles. KidSport identifies needs in the community, raises funds, and supports programs that allow young people to participate in sport. For more information, visit KidSport Alberta.
