National Health and Fitness Day is supported by multiple partners across Canada. The "Communities" page lists which ones have proclaimed the Day. This page lists most of the partners and supporters, some include links to letters of support. Members of the NHFD Advisory Council are noted with an asterisk*.

Partnership is integral to the success of the movement.  For Canada to become the fittest nation on earth, we need every municipality, every corporation, and every person to embrace the concept that being physically active is synonymous with being Canadian and that being fit for life is a Canadian ideal that we should all aspire to.
