Active Living

Active living is a way of life that integrates physical activity into your everyday routines, such as walking to the store or biking to work. It is generally a combination of physical activity and recreation activities aimed at the general public to encourage a healthier lifestyle.

Why is it important to live an active life?
Living an active life is important to staying healthy. Staying active helps to reduce your risk of conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Exercise has also been linked to improved mental health and cognitive function. You don’t have to be a distance runner to improve your health. The most important thing is that you’re staying active.

Climate Action

Climate change represents the greatest challenge facing the modern world. The state of the environment around the world is deteriorating at an alarming pace, and communities are experiencing the destabilizing effects of climate change in dramatic and costly ways. Long-term development gains are diminished when the environment is threatened.

The impacts of climate change are hitting home here in Canada. Floods, forest fires, and once in a 100-year weather events are the new normal.
