Physical activity plays an important role in the health, well-being and quality of life of Canadians. People who are physically active live longer, healthier lives. Active people are more productive, and more likely to avoid illness and injury.

Physical activity helps reduce the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease and can contribute to the positive treatment of those who may have these health issues.
