Our Components

Walk BC encourages both individual and group walking in communities across the province. The initiative is based on community, workplace and health care settings. The major components are:

  • Regional Training and Resources - Workshops for programmers and leaders held around the province to provide participants with the skills, tools and resources needed to create, implement and lead successful walking programs in their community.
  • Events Based Campaigns - Opportunities for communities to gain assistance in promoting, developing and implementing a walking event in their community will be available.
  • Physician Engagement - In partnership with BC Medical Association and the BC College of Family Physicians, Walk BC has created the Physician Engagement Program to support physicians across BC with resources for their patients about the benefits of physical activity, how to get started with a walking program, and local information on programs and opportunities.
