Learn more about the evidence that shape what we do and why.

Children in Canada spend an increasing amount of time indoors - sedentary and disconnected from their families, communities and environment.  This has a profound effect on their health, our communities and environment.  Community design, social, economic and health policies and a shift in culture are just a few of the contributors to this reality.

These are the concepts that we address to contribute to healthier kids, communities and environment:

  • Physical & Mental Health
  • Health Equity
  • Risk Benefits
  • Healthy & Sustainable Communities
  • Social Determinants of Health
  • Built & Natural Environment
  • Active Play
  • Active Transportation
  • Nature Deficit
