Ontario is investing in programs to keep children and youth in Waterloo Region physically active and to support student well-being.
Kathryn McGarry, MPP for Cambridge announced funding for three projects in Waterloo Region.
“Through this announcement, Ontario is encouraging more students to walk or cycle to and from school, and contributing to their overall health and well-being,” McGarry said.
Funding will be used for initiatives to reducing traffic congestion around schools.
Research shows that physical activity is key to the healthy growth and development of children and youth. It has a positive impact on their physical and mental health, and helps lay the foundation for healthy, productive lives.
Promoting student well-being through physical activity is part of the government's plan to support care, create opportunity and make life more affordable during this period of rapid economic change. The plan includes free prescription drugs for everyone under 25, and 65 or over, through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, and free preschool child care from 2 ½ to kindergarten.
