Active communities

Healthy communities are the places that make it easier to make healthy choices, and active communities are the places that make it easier for all residents to participate in meaningful and enjoyable physical activity. Where we live, learn, work and play impacts our health. Learn how to improve the health and vibrancy of your community through physical activity. Community members who participate in regular physical activity:

  • Improve individual physical and mental health
  • Improve the overall health of the population, its health care system, and the environment
  • Strengthen the local economy and sense of community
