Saskatchewan in Motion Welcomes National Framework for Physical Activity

Saskatchewan in motion looks forward to incorporating a new national framework for physical activity into its work to get the province's kids moving more. The framework was released on Thursday by Canada's federal, provincial and territorial ministers responsible for sport, physical activity and recreation. A Common Vision for Increasing Physical Activity and Reducing Sedentary Living in Canada is the country's first ever national policy of its kind.

We've been at this work for a long time, says Cathie Kryzanowski, executive director of Active Saskatchewan. It's exciting to finally have a single policy to help drive this important work across the country and across all sectors.

Kryzanowski is pleased to see the national framework call for co-ordination and collaboration among all stakeholders to address the issue.

We believe we all have a role to play when it comes to getting people to move more and sit less. The framework calls on all levels of government, private business, schools, service clubs, health promotion, community planners and others to do their part. We know from our work that this co-operation is necessary for success.

Saskatchewan in motion looks forward to aligning its work with the new framework and helping communities, schools and families do the same.
