Increase access to affordable opportunities for physical activity

How to implement

High impact: Create affordable opportunities for physical activity to ensure that all community members can participate, regardless of income level.1-3

    Try this: Further encourage participation in physical activity by ensuring safe and affordable transportation is available to and from venues and provide free or low-cost childcare or family activities during physical activity programming.

    Example in Action: The City of Fort Saskatchewan offers discounts on recreation facility passes and programs for low-income residents through its 'Everyone Plays' initiative.

    Try This: Link community members to local programs and initiatives that subsidize the cost of physical activity opportunities (e.g., Canadian Tire Jumpstart, Kidsport).
