The Manitoba Physical Activity Action Plan served as a guiding document for the creation of PACM. PACM was formed in October 2003 and is now poised to move forward with theManitoba Physical Activity Action Plan. The Coalition and Network was formed due to the commitment of the collaborating organizations to see the plan through to realization. PACM’s role is to guide the plan, increase communication and cooperation, present convincing evidence of best practices and to raise the profile of physical activity to maintain and increase health benefits of all Manitobans.

In 2014 the Manitoba Physical Activity Action Plan was updated. Click here for the updated version.
