Board Updates April 20, 2004

As you know the Coalition has been working over the past two years to develop a Pan-Canadian Physical Activity Strategy for Canada. The strategy defines Strategic Priorities, Directions and Actions to address the physicalinactivity crisis in Canada.

As members you have been consulted during this process and we thank you for your contributions.

It is our intention to use the strategy as a framework to encourage all stakeholders, including governments, to take comprehensive actions on physical activity. To this end, we will officially launch the Pan-Canadian Physical Activity Strategy on April 30th in Quebec city, to coincide with the annual meeting of the 14 F/P/T Ministers of Sport, Recreation and Fitness.

If any of our members wish to join us in Quebec city for the launch, you would be most welcome. The launch will take place the morning of April 30th at the Chateau Frontenac, before breakfast and prior to the meeting of Ministers, and will follow a CAL hosted "Walk the talk, walk" to which Ministers and their delegations will be invited.

If you plan on attending please let us know by emailing us at

Thank you for your support.
