A Common Vision For Increasing Physical Activity and Reducing Sedentary Living In Canada: Let’s Get Moving!

On May 31st, 2018, federal, provincial and territorial (FPT) ministers responsible for sport, physical activity and recreation released A Common Vision for Increasing Physical Activity and Reducing Sedentary Living in Canada: Let’s Get Moving. The principal purpose of the Common Vision is to guide and stimulate coordinated and collaborative policies and actions to increase physical activity and to reduce sedentary behaviours among all Canadians across their lifetime.

The Common Vision responds to the call by the World Health Organization (WHO) for Member States to develop national policies in keeping with the WHO Global Action Plan for Physical Activity released at the 71st World Health Assembly, held May 23, 2018, in Geneva, Switzerland.
