Act-i-Pass provides children in Grade 5 (+1) with FREE access to community-based physical activity opportunities for a whole year.
Research shows that physical activity begins to decrease in children as early as the age of 9 years. If grade 5 students can access physical activity opportunities, they will be given a chance at better health, longer lives, less illness, reduced screen time, and more play! Since Act-i-pass started in 2012, over 10,000 children in London have benefited from the program.
Of families who visit Family Centres, 90% said that it is easy to access services for their children. Family Centres give children, youth, and their parents opportunities participate in activities, meet others in their community, and learn about the services, supports and programs that help families thrive.
