It’s September! That means that the first snow isn’t likely too far off. But just because the summer is all but over doesn’t mean you should pack it in and prepare to hibernate for the winter. It’s time to Get Active.

If you don’t know, Get Active funds community events that get people more physically active in the NWT. It’s one of the ways we help people to keep moving during the winter months. Whether you’ve already got an event planned, or just have an idea for one, you can apply for the funding to make that event happen. Here’s how it works:

  1. You watch the video at the top of this page about the Get Active Program.
  2. Then you apply for a grant to put on three physical activity events or three elder events here. The events can be anything, from snowshoeing to walking bingo to an elders jigging party to Dene games.
  3. We’ll review the applications, checking to make sure your events meet all the necessary requirements. Events must:
    • Be free
    • Be open to the public
    • Take place between October 1, 2016 and March 23, 2017
  4. If your event is approved, we’ll send you an email letting you know and send you the first half of your grant. You will also receive a prize pack of items that can be given away or used as incentives for your event.
  5. Once all three of your events are done, you submit an online report here and we’ll send you the second half of the grant money.
