National Health and Fitness Day (NHFD) is an initiative to make Canada the Fittest Nation on Earth, starting with marking one day, the first Saturday in June as the day when Canadians get out and get active in any way they wish. Over the last few years, I have worked with former MP John Weston and other partners to involve all Parliamentarians in encouraging cities and towns across the country to proclaim the day and mark it with local events. Hundreds of communities have already proclaimed the day and the National Health and Fitness Day Act, Bill S-211, became law in December 2014.

Join Tiny Township for their Terrific Tiny Trek, Community Feast, All Ages Dance, and Fireworks - Fun for the whole family!
