PARC provides supports to Physical Activity Promoters across Ontario through consultation, training, networking, and knowledge sharing.

PARC was established in 2003, is managed by Ophea and is funded by the Government of Ontario with the key objective of reducing chronic disease through physical activity.

Currently, PARC’s programs and services are available in English (with some services available in French).

The Don’t Skip Out awareness campaign was developed to support physical activity promoters as they encourage individuals to be active.
