Healthy Living: Private – Public Partnerships for Healthier Living
- The Public Health Agency of Canada is supporting partnerships to advance innovative projects that promote healthier lifestyles and chronic disease prevention.
- The Public Health Agency of Canada is contributing $200,000 in funding to an innovative project involving Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada and Sun Life Financial called Get BUSY.
Get BUSY Program
Through Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, the Get BUSY program offers a range of physical activity opportunities (e.g., rock climbing) and promotes healthier eating choices (e.g., nutritious cooking classes) for children between the ages of eight and 12.
Funding will be used over a 24 month period to implement the program in 22 communities across the country, including low-income, rural, remote and northern communities. The program offers a range of physical activity opportunities to children and youth and equips them with information in order to make healthier choices. The program will also include a new focus on building more supportive physical and social environments in participating locations.
