Provides national leadership in promoting physical activity as a chronic disease prevention and management strategy to improve the health of Canadians.

Based upon abundant evidence that physical activity and exercise reduce the risk of chronic disease and the belief that:

  • Most Canadians can find simple ways to incorporate physical activity and exercise into their daily routines;
  • More should be done to address physical activity and exercise in the healthcare setting; physical activity and exercise should be incorporated as a key health indicator and standard of medical care as a 'vital sign'; and 
  • Certified exercise professionals serve as important resources for Canadians and their healthcare providers.
