Active living & recreation are critical components of creating healthy communities. Supporting healthy lifestyles is a preventative measure that Victoria County takes to reduce the factors negatively impacting the health of our communities.
Having fun and enjoying recreational activities is important. However, we must also address the seriousness of physical inactivity; its’ link to chronic disease, and the impact that rural isolation and struggles with mental health can have on our communities. By educating and engaging with community, we can raise awareness and provide opportunities that have been tailored to the needs and interests of our residents.
