Vision and Mission
Healthy living for life
Support lifelong healthy active aging of adult Canadians through participation, education, research, and promotion.
Definition of active living
Active Aging Canada subscribes to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) definition of active living as:
A way of life in which physical, social, mental, emotional and spiritual activities are valued and are integrated into daily living.
Active Aging Canada sees its role within the scope of this broad and inclusive definition, with its primary focus is on the promotion of physical activity, while recognizing the critical linkages of physical health with social, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
