Established in 2003, the Physical Activity Resource Centre (PARC) is managed by Ophea and is funded by the Ministry of Health Promotion.
PARC supports physical activity promoters and key community leaders working in public health, community health centres, recreation and sport organizations, and non-government organizations to enhance opportunities for healthy active living in Ontario.
Physical inactivity is the most prevalent modifiable risk factor for all major chronic diseases. PARC’s long-term vision is to increase the level of physical activity among Ontarians, and as a result, reduce the prevalence of chronic diseases.
Currently, PARC’s programs and services are available in English (with some services available in French) and reach physical activity promoters across Ontario.
