This section of our web site is designed specifically for the public. Active Aging Canada has developed many evidence-based resources over the years with the goal to inform, educate, motivate and inspire Canadians towards an active healthy lifestyle. We know that changing a behaviour is very difficult, however, we also know that by making very small changes over time add up to big changes.

Active Aging Canada strives to ensure that new research findings are applied to everyday living and that the information is made accessible for all to read. The documents in this section of our site are written in clear language, with no ‘scientific jargon’. In addition, many of our documents, specifically the Active Living Tips, found in the Healthy Living Section are also translated into seven other languages, acknowledging the diversity of ethnicities in Canada.
