ParticipACTION 150 Play List
The ParticipACTION 150 Play List is a national program designed to encourage all Canadians to sit less and move more. In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, we’ve created the ultimate list of physical activities that define us as Canadian. Individuals can participate by challenging themselves to complete them all in 2017 and earn chances to win some amazing prizes, along the way.
The ParticipACTION 150 Play List is a collaborative effort supported by the Government of Canada, premier corporate partners Manulife, Chevrolet and Shaw, the Government of B.C., the Government of Newfoundland & Labrador and national media partner Corus.
ParticipACTION has developed a micro-granting program, administered by viaSport, that will support not for profit community organizations, schools and municipalities who are planning to deliver 150 Play List programs and events in 2017. The programs or events should be inclusive, open to all free of charge, or at a minimal cost, and give the participants the opportunity to complete one or more of the physical activities on the 150 Play List.
Micro grants range from $300 to $1,000 and can support qualified instructors, equipment, marketing and promotion and other costs that will make the program or event even more impactful. Examples of eligible on-going programs (at least 4 weeks) and events include: weekly try-it sessions, multi-sport or multi-activity programs, open-houses, tournaments, mayor’s challenges, try-it days, neighborhood fun runs, or multi-organizational events.
