Welcome to National Health and Fitness Initiatives

Winter Health and Fitness Week

February 1-7, 2021

With all the challenges due to the pandemic now, more than ever, Canadians need to be active for their physical and mental health. During the first week of February join with our amazing partners to show all of the ways we can embrace winter and stay active. 

Get out and get moving Canada!


Our Background

How We Got Here

The National Health and Fitness Day Act, Bill S-211, became law in December 2014.

Canada is facing an inactivity crisis.  Daily physical activity is on the decline and preventable illness is on the rise.  It's time to get up, get out, and get active!  National Health and Fitness Day (NHFD) is an initiative to challenge Canada to become the Fittest Nation on Earth, starting with making one day, the first Saturday in June, the day when Canadians get out and get active in any way they wish.

With the passage of the National Health and Fitness Day Act in 2014, Canada gained a Day to celebrate.
