Albertans enjoy a high quality of life, improved health and wellness, strong communities, economic benefits and personal fulfillment, through recreation, active living and sport.
What is Active Alberta?
A government policy to achieve recreation, active living and sport outcomes, through a coordinated system, involving stakeholders, non-profit organizations, other levels of government, the private sector and individuals.
Research tells us that sedentary lifestyles and resulting obesity and health related problems are on the rise. We need a new approach to counteract this trend.
Active Alberta will take a coordinated approach to program design, service delivery and funding to produce measurable results on Albertans' activity levels, health and quality of life.
Active Alberta strategies go beyond awareness. All partners will work collaboratively to achieve the outcomes.
Who Can Be Involved?
Everyone! Government, non-profit organizations, schools, private corporations, communities and individual Albertans.
All Albertans can contribute to creating a more Active Alberta.
Over the next two years the Government of Alberta will work closely with its partners to identify priorities, specific actions and measures to guide program design, service delivery and funding for recreation, active living and sport to achieve the six Active Alberta outcomes.
