Welcome to ISPARC’s Healthy Living Activities!


I·SPARC is pleased to announce the Regional Leader Training Session dates for 2017. These free training sessions are open to community members passionate about delivering healthy living programs in First Nations, Métis chartered communities, and friendship centres.

As part of the Aboriginal Healthy Living Activities programming, five Regional Leader Training Sessions will be hosted, featuring two days of health and wellness workshops, providing participants with the tools they need to develop their own community-based healthy living program. Participants have the option of training in either the Aboriginal Run Walk or the Honour Your Health Challenge:

  • Aboriginal RunWalk: lead your participants in a 13-21 week training program, preparing for a 5 or 10km run/walk event
  • Honour Your Health Challenge: develop your own healthy living program, based on your community’s needs – past programs include creating a community cookbook, Family Fitness Fridays, weekly plant identification walks, “Kick the Nic” tobacco cessations program, Healthy Mamas Group, and many more.

This year, the Aboriginal Healthy Living Activities is excited to announce the launch of our short promotional video, bringing our programs to life and showcasing the tremendous work of our leaders. Watch below and join us at this year’s Regional Leader Training Sessions to become a Healthy Living Leader!

All participants who attend Regional Leader Training will be eligible to apply for up to $1000 in grant support of their Aboriginal Run Walk or Honour Your Health Challenge program.

Please post and share our Save the Date poster with any friends, colleagues, or family that may be interested in becoming a Healthy Living Leader. Registration will open in August.
