The vision of the Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability is a society where every person in Canada, regardless of background or ability, has the opportunity to be active and healthy across their lifespan.
The Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability has collected several stories about how Canadians with disabilities participate in physical activity, sport and recreation. Their passion will inspire you and give you ideas on embracing physical activity in your own lives.
Active living provides several physical and mental health benefits, including increased energy levels, improved heart and lung function, strong bones and muscles, a healthy weight, healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels, improved mood and feelings of happiness, and the ability to manage stress with improved mental health.
