New Report and Advocacy Campaign--Time to Move on Child and Youth Health, Ophea

Ophea has been working on advocacy related to finalization, release and implementation of the health and physical education (H&PE) curriculum for a few years now. Recently, our efforts have focused on the development of a report highlighting the state of child and youth health in Ontario, and the potential for H&PE to have a positive impact on the alarming trends.

Today, that report was officially released and will be accompanied by a grassroots advocacy campaign encouraging members of the general public to read the report, sign an online petition in support of release and implementation of the curriculum, and send letters advocating for the release to their MPP and local newspaper.

All of this can be found online at or
