The Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Council is pleased to announce that registration will open on August 27th for the 2018 Regional Leader Training Sessions (RTS), offered through the Aboriginal Healthy Living Activities (AHLA), in partnership with SportMedBC.
The RTS are offered to individuals working within, or representing an Indigenous community, who are committed to delivering a healthy living program under the Aboriginal RunWalk or Honour Your Health Challenge. The sessions are designed to bring together community leaders and individuals who are passionate about promoting health and wellness in the indigenous community in one or all of these four key areas: increased physical activity, healthy eating, reduction of tobacco misuse, and supporting healthy pregnancies.
Workshops will be offered in Nutrition, Physical Literacy, Addictions, FitNation, Mental Wellness, Nordic Walking, a Regional Resource Panel and more! Participants will learn from experts in their respective fields, and develop the skills necessary to deliver their own healthy living community program.

AHLA Main PageThe Aboriginal Healthy Living Activities (AHLA) is a provincially funded program designed to bring together community leaders and individuals who are passionate about health and wellness and to promote healthy living in four key areas:
- Physical activity
- Healthy eating
- Respecting tobacco
- Healthy pregnancies
In 2011/12, the ISPARC successfully completed its first year as the administrative body of the AHLA. The five initiatives delivered under the 2011/12 AHLA banner reached over 5000 Aboriginal people throughout the province, and participation levels have steadily increased ever since. To date, the AHLA has delivered 832 healthy living projects, reaching over 28,000 participants across the province.
ISPARC continues to focus on increasing capacity within Indigenous communities and Friendship Centres to develop and deliver innovative, needs-based and culturally responsive programs that are improving the health and well-being of Aboriginal people across British Columbia. The support of our three founding organizations and AHLA partners is integral to creating these successful provincial initiatives.
