Recognizing the value of collaborative efforts that support increases in children’s physical activity levels, KidActive partnered with community members and leaders to form the Physical Activity Network - Renfrew County. 

The PAN-RC mission is to support and develop accessible opportunities for residents and visitors to integrate physical activity into their daily lives – where they live, play, learn and work.

Healthy Children Healthy Spaces

The HCHS initiative was launched with a children's health conference that took place in November 2010 at the Museum of Nature in Ottawa.

With more than 100 engaged multi-sector champions and experts, we explored the roles that outdoor spaces, risk, perceptions of risk and liability, access to safe, inspiring outdoor play, learning and living have on the health of our children and communities. 

Outcomes address existing barriers and increasing access to healthy spaces which foster opportunities for every child to learn, live and play outside.
