ABOUT ABORIGINAL ETHNIC NEWCOMER AFTER SCHOOL WORKSHOPS RESOURCES TAKE ACTION

CAAWS is excited to be involved with the Canadian Active After School Partnership (CAASP), designed to increase healthy living opportunities during the after-school time period. The after-school time period, between 3pm and 6pm, is an important opportunity for children and youth to be physically active – approximately 50 percent of total daily steps taken by children and youth occur during this time. By increasing quality opportunities for children and youth to be physically active during this period, CAASP activities will contribute to addressing rising rates of physical inactivity and obesity amongst children and youth.
