Cover Story: Presentation Slide Deck
Active Healthy Kids Canada is a national charitable organization established in 1994 that works to power the movement to get kids moving™
Provides strategic national leadership – advancing knowledge, evidence-informed communication and advocacy strategies– to influence issue stakeholders who affect physical activity opportunities for children and youth
The primary vehicle to achieve this mandate is the Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youthand its related activities
The Report Card, now in its ninth year of production, is an evidence-informed communications and advocacy piece designed to provide insight into Canada’s “state of the nation” each year on how, as a country, we are being responsible in providing physical activity opportunities for children and youth.
Our model has been replicated in other jurisdictions around the world including Kenya, South Africa, Mexico and Louisiana.
