phys·i·cal lit·er·a·cy noun : Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life.

At the Canada Games Centre, we strive to provide the best programs and services possible to improve physical literacy for all – from the very young to the young at heart.

Following the Sport for Life (S4L)’s guidelines for physical literacy, we continue to add and improve programming every season.
