ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge

Did you know that Everything gets better when you get active? Even communities!

Are you ready to get active with the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge?

Connect with friends and neighbours and build social bonds while also having a lot of fun participating in physical activity right in your own neighbourhood.

Your community could win the prize of $150,000 and be crowned Canada’s Most Active Community.

The challenge will run between May 31st and June 16th.

How do I track my minutes?

Check out the Apple App Store or Google Play and download the new ParticipACTION app.

Track active minutes through the app to be automatically counted toward your community score. The more you track, the greater chance your community has of winning. You also have the chance to win great prizes for yourself when you use the app.

Starting May 31, you can also track active minutes for yourself, your family, or an organization here.

FREE ParticipACTION Events!

All activity minutes count but the Town has also put together a bunch of FREE events from May 31st – June 16th to help you move! Click here for a printable version.
