A Common Vision for Increasing Physical Activity and Reducing Sedentary Living in Canada: Let's Get Moving.
The principal purpose of the Common Vision is to guide and stimulate coordinated and collaborative policies and actions to increase physical activity and to reduce sedentary behaviours among all Canadians across their lifetime.
A lack of physical activity is a critical public health issue affecting Canadians of all ages. The Common Vision will help to address this by building on current policies, frameworks and strategies already in place relating to sport, recreation and healthy living, while advancing new and emerging approaches in policies and programming.
On May 31, 2018 the Common Vision document was released along with several supporting documents available here:Common Vision Document
