Everything gets better when you get active.
Even communities!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the first-ever ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge. Between May 31st and June 16th, Canadians from coast to coast tracked a total of 263,404,857 minutes! Wow!

This year’s challenge is now over (don’t worry, it will be back again in 2020), so it’s time to determine who will be crowned Canada’s Most Active Community.

Momentarily, the leaderboard will be replaced with the official 30 finalists in the challenge.

Following that, make sure to visit our website on June 27th when we will be announcing our regional winners and Canada’s Most Active Community. Way to go Canada, we’ll see you again next year!

Let’s Community Better, together

The Community Better Challenge is an annual event that aims to get neighbourhoods across the country moving together.

Oh, did we mention that your community could win $150,000 to go toward physical activity initiatives if it’s crowned as Canada’s Most Active Community? It’s true!

At the conclusion of the challenge, one community will earn the top prize and title of being Canada’s most active. In addition to the national winner, there will also be finalists recognized from all regions of Canada who will be awarded $20,000.

The challenge runs for two weeks every June, so make sure you have the ParticipACTION app downloaded and get ready to track your physical activity.

Who's Canada's Most Active Community?

Congrats to the top tracking communities from across the country!

Each of the six regions’ top-five communities are displayed here. The finalists will be notified and asked to provide details as to why they should be awarded the title of Canada’s Most Active Community. Winners will be announced on June 27th. For further details, please click here.

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.

or

Track minutes for yourself, your family, or an organization here.

Looking to participate as a group, school or organization?

The challenge is open to all Canadians, and we are also encouraging organizations, schools, sport groups and workplaces to participate and track their minutes as a team.

All group physical activity counts. Track your group exercise classes, practices, events or even lunchtime walks. Every little bit counts.

Spread the active word, get your community members engaged in physical activity and have a lot of fun while you’re at it!
