CPRA is monitoring and working closely with Health Canada officials on the regulations that will support Bill S-228 - restricting the marketing of unhealthy food and beverages to children. Attached is a briefing note on the Bill and the potential implications it will have on the recreation sector in Canada.
The Common Vision was developed by federal-provincial-territorial governments as a guide to addressing physical inactivity and sedentary behavior among Canadians of all ages and abilities. The Common Vision was developed in close consultation with the sector including CPRA.
