Health Sub Navigation


Go Active! Be Healthy. Get active and choose physical activity that you like to do. Start small and increase the time and intensity level as you progress. Regular physical activity can lead to improved fitness and strength, growth and development, mental health and mood, and give you a chance of living longer. It can also help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, types of cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and osteoporosis.

Active transportation uses human-powered energy to get to places. It is an easy way to fit physical activity into your daily routine.

These are the recommended guidelines for physical activity in Canada for children, adults and seniors.

The Healthy Measures e-bulletin is full of easy-to-read, practical health and nutrition information and tips.

Children develop physical literacy by learning a wide range of movement skills like jumping, catching, running and throwing. Learning these skills will make them more likely to be active and healthy throughout their entire lives.
