National Health and Fitness Day

National Health and Fitness Day is a  an initiative to mark one day, the first Saturday in June, as the day when Canadians get out and get active in any way they wish.  In December of 2014, the National Health and Fitness Act, Bill S-211, was passed making it an official day in Canada.

Nearly three hundred communities, from across the country, have already joined the initiative and Kingston will celebrate it for the first time this year.


We invite you to participate by hosting an “Open Doors” event on this day.  To participate and be promoted as being part of NHFD Kingston 2018 were asking you to:

  • be open to the public on June 2nd between 9:00am – 4:00pm
  • provide supervised activity for free to the public and/or a demonstration or explanation of what physical activity you offer
  • be responsible for individuals who visit your site
