Physical Activity Kits

Through the generosity of the Communities Choosewell Grant and matching Imperial - Strathcona Refinery grant, a limited number of at-home recreation kits for families with younger children, families with older children, and older adults, have been created for Strathcona County residents. Home recreation kits offer supplies and materials for people to be physically active at home and may be available to those who experience barriers to recreate (while supply lasts).

For more information on the free physical activity kits, please contact Family and Community Services at 780-464-4044.
