The "Aboriginal Communities: Active for Life" workshop is designed for Aboriginal community members, such as parents, Elders, educators, recreation leaders and coaches, who value being active as a vehicle to the holistic development and well being of both the individual and the community.  

The Physical Literacy Instructor Program is a blended e-learning and in-person training experience that provides the opportunity for an individual to become a recognized Physical Literacy Instructor.  Participants complete one online e-learning module as well as three in-person workshops.
