CCS adapting to COVID-19 realities to support Canadians during and after the pandemic
Walking School Bus
Regular physical activity over your lifetime protects against cancer. Given the low proportion of children meeting recommended physical activity guidelines in Ontario, there is a need for programs that support youth and their families to be more active.
Developing healthy childhood habits at an early age has been shown to have long-term health benefits. Walking to school can lead to increased physical activity in the community outside of school and build life-long healthy physical active habits.
The Walking School Bus program supports schools and communities to set up and run their own Walking School Bus program by providing tools and resources to schools to develop procedures, recruit and train volunteer walk leaders, increase awareness and promote daily physical activity.
