Canadian government re-launches ParticipACTION

The Canadian Government has announced that it will provide funding over two years to support the renewal of ParticipACTION, a not-for-profit organization that promotes physical fitness and activity to Canadians.

ParticipACTION, founded in 1971, encouraged physical activity for Canadians from the 1970s to the 1990s.  As part of the renewal, ParticipACTION is partnering with media, business, labour, education, volunteer organizations as well as sport groups.

The government also announced the launch of a new health-related website,, to provide a reliable source for information on health and lifestyle issues.  Users can access links to existing Government of Canada web content, such as Canada's new Food Guide.
