Canadian Sport for Life CS4L is a movement to improve the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada.  CS4L links sport, education, recreation and health and aligns community, provincial and national programming.


Our education system plays a pivotal role, beginning with physical literacy during childhood.  From our daycares and preschools to our colleges and universities, we hold the key to a vast opportunity to improve the quality of sport, physical activity and the health of our nation.
