About Us

Walking is an easy form of physical activity for most people and regular walking can lead to long term lifestyle changes and health benefits.

WalkBC® encourages individual and group walking to increase overall health in communities through a range of programs that promote walking. This site helps communities and individuals increase awareness of the importance of a physically active lifestyle and support and promote walking as a key factor in increasing overall health and well-being.

WalkBC® was created through a joint initiative between the Heart & Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon and the BC Recreation & Parks Association (BCRPA). It was one of four initiatives under the Physical Activity Strategy. Funding was provided by the BC Healthy Living Alliance, with support from ActNow BC. The WalkBC® initiative is now managed solely by the BCRPA.
