We are excited to announce that BC Alliance for Healthy Living (BCAHL) and the Physical Activity for Health Collaborative have launched the much anticipated EverybodyMoves Resource Hub! The Hub is a one-stop shop for sport and recreation leaders who want to ensure physical activity is as inclusive and accessible as possible. 

Physical activity is vital for one’s health, and yet we know many British Columbians face visible and invisible barriers to regular activity.
