The Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Shaping Active, Healthy Communities is now online! This new tool kit will facilitate community engagement and help Canadians, (concerned citizens, community champions, developers and planners) to work together to influence and change how neighbourhoods are planned and designed so they are more conducive to encouraging physical activity and heart health.
The tool kit is a national resource, available in English (and will soon be available in French). Currently it can be downloaded at no cost online on the Heart and Stroke Foundation website at http://www.heartandstroke.ca/HealthyCommunities. Pending additional funding, print copies may become available.
