Special Invitation: Survey to inform an FPT physical activity framework


Federal, provincial and territorial (FPT) Ministers responsible for sport, physical activity, and recreation (SPAR) in Canada (excluding Québec) requested the development of an FPT physical activity framework that will help guide efforts for governments to address physical activity and sedentary behaviour; that will exist alongside other government and/or community-led efforts that contribute to encouraging Canadians to live active lifestyles. These other efforts include Active Canada 20/20: A Physical Activity and Change Agenda for Canada (AC 20/20), the Canadian Sport Policy, Framework for Recreation in Canada 2015: Pathways to Wellbeing, Curbing Childhood Obesity: A FPT Framework for Action to Promote Healthy Weights, among others.

FPT governments want to hear from all relevant stakeholders as part of a consultation process to inform the development of this framework.

The Conference Board of Canada was commissioned in August 2016 by governments to oversee the consultation process and develop a report that will synthesize the insights generated from a public survey and discussions from a series of webinars and a national workshop to help inform the development of the physical activity framework.

The survey was launched on October 20.

You or your organization has been identified as an important voice in these discussion, and we encourage you to respond to the survey before November 12 for a chance to with a FitBit.
