Prescription to Get Active

Let’s get moving.

Increased physical activity can help your overall health — but sometimes finding the right activity, or even the motivation to get moving, can prove tricky.

Prescription to Get Active is an actual prescription your doctor can give you to help get you motivated, discover new activities (or remind you of ones you love). This program breaks down barriers in accessing those activities through free trial passes to local recreation centres partnered with the program.

All City of Calgary recreational facilities — as well as other locations throughout Calgary and Cochrane — are partners in this program. Get more information at Prescription to Get Active and ask your family doctor if a referral to this program is right for you.
