The Town of Antigonish Physical Activity Strategy is a call to action for community organizations, agencies, business and municipal leaders to address the unacceptably low levels of physical activity among the citizens of the Town of Antigonish. The benefits of physical activity and risks of sedentary behaviour are well-established, yet low levels of physical activity and high levels of sedentary behaviour persist globally, nationally, provincially, and locally. A variety of factors in today’s society often make it easier to be sedentary than to be physically active. These factors range from those that are socioeconomic (such as lower levels of income or education), to the way people schedule themselves to live fast-paced, busy lives. The Town of Antigonish Physical Activity Strategy will be used as a guide for community organizations, agencies, business and municipal leaders to strive toward the following vision for a more physically active future in the Town of Antigonish.
