About National Health and Fitness Day 2021

Canada is in the second year of battling COVID and coping with pandemic restrictions. People are tired, frustrated and fatigued. While physical activity opportunities are limited or unavailable we know that being active helps significantly with managing stress and depression. This year especially we want to highlight the ways people can get active and how important activity is for physical and mental health.

We want to identify and applaud the many ways that Canadians “get moving” and keep active on the trails, waterways and in the parks of Canada.

This year we are unifying our actions and events with a centralized call to action hashtag to invite Canadians of all abilities to “get moving”. This is particularly important due to the effects of COVID-19 on our country. On National Health and Fitness Day we invite all Canadians to #ShowUsYourMoves with this inclusive campaign.

Events and social media activity using the #showusyourmoves or #bougeavecnous will be showcased on a central campaign page at www.showusyourmoves.ca and www.bougeavecnous.ca.
