The 2013 Active Healthy Kids Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth, released in early March, is the 9th annual edition and provides the most current and comprehensive assessment of the physical activity of children and youth in Canada.



Inspired by the critical need to address immediate physical and mental health issues facing Canada's young people, KidActive was founded to foster the development of healthy kids, communities and outdoor environments. Browse our projects...

School Programs

school kids playing outside

Every child needs access to natural spaces for their health, well-being and success at school. 

KidActive program facilitators attended Mackenzie Community School (MCS) in Deep River ON recently to engage students in outdoor learning workshops, linking the curriculum through active play to the concepts of fostering healthy kids, communities and environments. KidActive encourages kids, teachers and parents to get outside more in our local, natural spaces, enhancing learning opportunities and building physical activity, inclusion and fun into our daily routines.

Healthy by Nature

Building on the knowledge and foundation of similar initiatives that link health, well being and nature, KidActive is contributing to the Healthy by Nature Forum. 

Healthy by Nature took place in Vancouver, September 20th-23rd, 2011.  The multi sector forum shared research, evidence based models which integrated nature and health, insight and international expertise.  It paved the way for collective action which recognizes that people and communities that engage with nature are healthier, stronger and more sustainable - economically, socially and environmentally.
