NCCIH Webinar - First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and Physical Activity during COVID-19
Physical activity is a fundamental aspect of good health and well-being. Increased awareness of and access to opportunities to engage in physical activity, recreation and sport support improved physical, mental and social outcomes at all ages. To address the health needs and considerations of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples as they pertain to physical activity, recreation and sport, innovative and culturally appropriate approaches that meaningfully respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action (2015) and the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (2009) are needed.

The focus of this webinar is to create awareness of the importance of physical activity, recreation and sport, and historical and contemporary realities of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada within this landscape. The webinar will focus on strategies and innovative approaches that prioritize Indigenous experiences, practices and community voices within this field. Examples of ways for individuals, children/youth, and families to initiate or maintain physical activity in the context of COVID-19 will be explored.
