Active and Safe Physical Literacy and Injury Prevention

Welcome to the Active and Safe Physical Literacy and Injury Prevention home page.

In an effort to encourage physical literacy and reduce injury risk, Canadian Sport For Life (CS4L) and its partners - The Sandbox Project; Physical and Health Education Canada; Canadian Parks and Recreation Association; Respect in Sport; The Play Safe Initiative; RBC First Office for Injury Prevention – Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre; and Lakehead University - have partnered with BC Sport Agency and Sport Newfoundland and Labrador to explore the effectiveness of developing physical literacy as a means to reach two goals:

  • Improve the health and wellbeing of Canadian children,
  • Reduce injury risk while participating in physical activity.

The goal of this Physical Literacy and Injury Prevention project is to reduce injuries and create safer sport by increasing the quality of sport and physical activity through the development of children’s physical literacy.
