Physical Activity and Physical Literacy for All
The School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project is a multicomponent, school-based health promotion initiative for B.C. elementary schools. The project will provide both in-person and online professional development opportunities to build the capacity of B.C. elementary school educators to increase their confidence and competence in delivering quality physical activity and physical literacy opportunities at school, and support links to mental well-being. The project is being prototyped across a diverse subset of school districts and schools in British Columbia.
Physical Activity and Physical Literacy for All (Diverse Abilities):
Throughout British Columbia, generalist educators can be found in the gymnasium leading their students through varying physical activities. The School Physical Activity and Physical Literacy project is aimed at removing potential barriers for generalist elementary educators through increased professional development opportunities and providing easy, user friendly, and accessible resources to support them in delivering on the curriculum. This training is one of many, designed to equip educators with the knowledge and confidence to increase physical activity participation and develop physical literacy with their students.

A Blueprint for Building Quality Participation in Sport for Children and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder
The Canadian Disability Participation Project was approached by and partnered with Ausome Ottawa to produce A Blueprint for Building Quality Participation in Sport for Children and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The Blueprint is tailored to recreational sport and physical activity programs for children and youth with autism spectrum disorder and introduces coaches and volunteers to key concepts that underpin quality participation (i.e., the building blocks of quality participation) to better facilitate quality sport experiences for young athletes with autism spectrum disorder. The Blueprint provides evidence-based strategies for building quality participation in such programs.

The Working Together Program is a free employment program for persons with self-identified disabilities. It helps participants prepare for, obtain and maintain employment. It is a participant-centred program which uses blended learning to help individuals reach their personal employment related goals. They serve people with disabilities and their future employers, filling gaps in services and expertise until government and industry can directly pursue the benefits of a diverse society and workforce.

Everybody Moves Resource Hub
BC Alliance for Healthy Living and the Physical Activity for Health Collaborative have launched the much anticipated EverybodyMoves Resource Hub!
The Hub is a one-stop shop for sport and recreation leaders who want to ensure physical activity is as inclusive and accessible as possible.
Physical activity is vital for one’s health, and yet we know many British Columbians face visible and invisible barriers to regular activity.
For example, nearly half of adults with disabilities don’t get any aerobic physical activity, and people identifying as lesbian, gay and bisexual of all ages are less likely to participate in sports.
The consequences for not being physically active are serious. People who don’t engage in physical activity are more likely to have increased mental and emotional health issues, decreased immune function and inflammation, and are more at risk for developing chronic illnesses.
BC clearly needs solutions to get us all active, and the EverybodyMoves Resource Hub is part of the answer! Read more here.
