The Grande Prairie Get Active Network is a group of community agencies whose vision is to help improve the quality of life of the residents of Grande Prairie and area through a variety of means, including but not limited to, physical activity intitiatives. 

Communities ChooseWell is an energizing healthy eating and active living initiative supported by Alberta Health and managed by the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association.  The goal of Communities ChooseWell is to foster healthy Alberta citizens and communities through education, community capacity building, and partnerships that support healthy eating, active living, and social wellbeing. 

UWALK is developed by the University of Alberta's Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation and funded by the Government of Alberta. UWALK aims to help Albertans find their stride and support them moving forward. You can find your stride through any form of physical activity and track your activity minutes or steps on our website. We are here to provide you with tools and resources to get you started and keep you moving.
