Strategy Principles



Strategy Principles

Community Design:

Future community design aims to increase public green space 

Education and Awareness:

The benefits of building an active County are communicated to stakeholders supported with education sessions in communities throughout the County


Strategy will be a living document, regularly monitored, evaluated & updated


Initiatives will aim to be evidence-based building on data and interventions that have proven successful elsewhere

Existing Assets:

The Strategy will rely on the existing infrastructure, programs and services to build on strengths in the County. New initiatives will be community-based and not duplicated within that community


Existing & new Infrastructure will be supported that provides opportunities for physical activity, healthy eating and active transportation. It will support educational activities in the county


Residents will be involved in the design, development and delivery of physical activity and healthy eating initiatives. The Strategy is for all residents, and includes a focus for groups with priority needs

Partnership & Collaboration:

Relationships will be developed with multiple and diverse stakeholders from government, health, schools, law enforcement, municipal staff, development/planning, economic development and business, residents, environment, outdoor recreation and accessibility interest groups


Policy approaches will promote active living at workplaces, schools, recreation facilities and in community decision-making.
