After successfully winning the Community Challenge in 2021, the Health, Fitness and Wellness Advisory Committee plans to defend our title as Canada’s Most Active Community starting June 1, 2022.

The month will kick off with a Healthy Living Expo on Saturday, June 4, 2022, at Riverside Park from 9 am to 1 pm. The Expo will feature different health and wellness businesses in our community. There will also be several groups running activities and demonstrations for participants to join in the fun and start tracking their minutes!

Mayor Nancy Peckford will kick-off the Healthy Living Expo at 9 am with a family-friendly 1.5 km walk around Riverside Park, including a short, forested trail at the back of the park. The walk is a chance for residents to ask questions and share their feedback on recreation, mental health and community well-being. Other members of Council will also be in attendance.

ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge

The ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge is an annual event that encourages Canadians across the country to get active for the month of June. Participants were encouraged to track their minutes on the Participaction App or website. All physical activity minutes counted – whether it was a virtual fitness class, chair yoga, walking the dog, or yard work. All individual and group fitness counted.
