In an effort to promote physical activity through participation and involvement in sport, we are sharing with you promotional material for the upcoming RBC Sports Day in Canada on November 28th.

This is the fifth annual hosting of RBC Sports Day in Canada, which is a national celebration of the power of sport to build community and get Canadians moving. This national celebration of sport is brought to you by a partnership of ParticpACTION, CBC and True Sport and RBC as title sponsor.
There are many ways to get involved and we have included an information sheet on just one way that you and your organization, school or business can participate. This is meant to be a fun, interactive way to remind people about the benefits of being active and participating in sports.
