Within the area of Active Living, our goal is to strengthen access to physical activity with a focus on supporting increased participation across a population.

To be considered for Active Living funding, the organization/initiative must meet the following criteria:

  • serve a region where Medavie has operations (Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland and Labrador)
  • applicant organization must be a community-based non-profit
  • demonstrate strong organizational financial management and governance
  • will use funds to increase or improve access to active living through regular and consistent physical activity across a population (e.g., public recreation spaces) AND/OR addresses barriers to active living / physical activity for a community that disproportionately is less likely to have access to active living
  • is open to the public and accessible across a community (i.e., no/low cost, in a public/community space);
  • tracks community impact in terms of number or increased number of people participating and increased physical activity as well as improvements in physical literacy and/or physical health condition
