About go!PEI

go!PEI is a community-based healthy living program that offers free physical activity and healthy eating programs for Islanders across PEI. go!PEI is designed around providing information and supports to assist all Islanders to make simple changes to their lifestyle to improve their overall health and quality of life.

The go!PEI team is made up of provincial partners (Island Trails and PEI Healthy Eating Alliance), Regional Sport & Recreation Councils and four major municipalities (City of Charlottetown, City of Summerside, Town of Cornwall, and Town of Stratford).   This group works together to provide opportunities for Islanders wishing to make a change to their personal health.   Through these partners, go!PEI delivers free programs all across the province focusing on walking, running, biking, hiking and healthy eating activities.

go!PEI's seven core principles are to deliver:

1. Activities that are low cost or no cost
2. Activities that have readily available infrastructure across the Province
3. Activities that require limited equipment
4. Activities that do not have time constraints
5. Activities that can be done as an individual or as part of a group
6. Activities that can be done by any age group
7. Activities that can be done year round (maybe not cycling)

 

 

How to get Involved

Become a leader: It is our hope to have as many Islanders as possible organize and deliver a program to their community, group or organization. If you have an interest in getting something started for your group, send our coordinator an email.

Sign up for our E-Newsletter: We send out an email newsletter throughout the year with healthy living tips, stories and upcoming events. You can sign up for our newsletter on our website or when you register for a go!PEI program. Or, you can email Laura at gopei@recreationpei.ca!

Participate in a Program/Event: The calendar of events is available on our website which identifies when free upcoming courses and programs are taking place. For programs specific to your community, please contact the community partner nearest you for information.

Request Information: If you want to mobilize your workplace, organization, family or neighbors we can help you do this by providing some information. A number of workplaces have organized go!PEI activities as part of their workplace wellness initiatives by receiving resources from our office.

Download Resources: Finally, if you want to make some personal healthy living changes you can collect tips and lessons on how to do so on our website. You can download program booklets (to follow at home on your own) and healthy living information on our resource page.
