Update on pan-Canadian Physical Activity Framework
As you may be aware, in 2015, federal, provincial, and territorial Ministers responsible for sport, physical activity and recreation in Canada (FPT SPAR) requested the
development of a pan-Canadian physical activity framework. Development is underway and a title has been chosen: Let’s Get Moving: A Common Vision for Increasing Physical
Activity and Reducing Sedentary Living in Canada (Common Vision). The Recreation and Physical Activity Division is the lead Alberta department in this initiative.
The Common Vision is being drafted for consideration by FPT SPAR Ministers at the end of July, 2017.
A national consultation process to inform the development of the Common Vision document, managed by the Conference Board of Canada, was completed March 31, 2017. The
Conference Board of Canada heard from a broad array of stakeholders including individuals, professionals, businesses and not-for-profit organizations, all levels of
government, and other Canadians, representing a variety of sectors and/or disciplines at national, provincial-territorial, regional and/or local levels. The consultation
report and addendum (a more in-depth engagement with rural, remote, and indigenous communities) are being used to inform the development of a pan-Canadian approach to
physical activity and sedentary behaviour.
We would like to thank all those organizations and individuals who provided input during the consultation process.
