New Active Communities Action Guide released

This guide is for local governments of rural and urban communities across British Columbia who want to create active, healthy and thriving places for all people. While age and genetics have some impact, it is primarily the physical and socio-economic environments in which we live, learn, work and play that determine if, and how often, we are physically active. The Active Communities Action Guide offers ideas and resources for local governments to develop more opportunities for their communities to be active in their daily lives. The guide includes information on the co-benefits of physical activity, actions and examples from BC communities, opportunities for funding, a list of other resources, and a summary checklist that local governments can use to evaluate their physical activity strategy and next steps forward.
