ParticipACTION 2023

$100,000 ! 

In collaboration with Simpcw First Nation (Chu Chua), Barriere is excited to announce that we have been selected for the ParticipACTION Community Challenge, taking place starting June 1st to 30th !

The Community Better Challenge is a nationwide physical activity challenge encouraging Canadians to get active during June. Municipalities, schools, workplaces, sport & rec groups, and residents of ALL AGES can log physical activity minutes through the free ParticipACTION app or website. 

The Challenge is open to everyone with a V0E-1E0 Postal Code and all minutes logged into the app and the website from June 1 – 30, 2023, will be counted towards a community’s total score. After June 30th, 50 finalist communities from across the country will be invited to submit an application to win the $100,000 grand prize that can be used by the community to create or enhance recreation facilities, trails & other programming.

ParticipACTION is a national non-profit challenge, whose mission has been to inspire Canadians to sit less and move more for the past 50 years.

Mayor Stamer has Declared National Health and Fitness Day for June 3rd, 2023!
