Active Alberta Coalition: The Beginning

On May 30, 2018, a group of Alberta Movement Builders in the sport, recreation, and physical activity sector reached a consensus on a foundation for this movement, bringing the Active Alberta Coalition to life. We will continue to evolve with the work as more leaders and Alberta organizations gather to shape and create a voice to get Albertans to be the most physically active and healthiest population in Canada.
