Program update

Please note that Activate is no longer accepting participants. Since 2018 we helped over 4,500 pre-hypertensive participants manage their blood pressure. We are undergoing a formal program evaluation and are exploring further opportunities for Activate and look forward to sharing these results in 2021!


Make small healthy changes

Activate will help you eat better, move more and manage stress with our free tools and resources. We'll be enrolling participants from September 2019 across Canada.


Activate has suspended all events due to COVID-19.
