CAAWS is excited to be involved with the new Canadian
Active After School Partnership (CAASP), designed to
increase healthy living opportunities during the after-school
time period. The after-school time period, between 3pm
and 6pm, is an important opportunity for children and
youth to be physically active – approximately
50 percent of total daily steps taken by children and
youth occur during this time. By increasing quality
opportunities for children and youth to be physically
active during this period, CAASP activities will contribute
to addressing rising rates of physical inactivity and
obesity amongst children and youth.
