    DPA Every Day is a free resource designed to support the implementation of Daily Physical Activity (DPA) to enhance student well-being and achievement. This resource encourages healthy, active living and inspires students, families, and staff to prioritize getting active every day.

    DPA Every Day provides an opportunity to engage in conversations about the benefits of being active throughout the school day in Grades 1-8. The resource includes a DPA poster available to download and video (coming in Spring 2018).

    This resource supports the Ministry of Education’s recently revised DPA policy (PPM 138) which supports 20 minutes of DPA during instructional time, contributing to the goal of getting children and youth active for 60 minutes every day.

    DPA Every Day is available in English and French.
