Most of us already know the importance of active living. Physical activity increases energy levels, helps us handle stress better and strengthens the heart and lungs - all important aspects of healthy living. The result is a better quality of life for people of all ages. Yet less than half of Manitobans engage in enough physical activity to improve their health.
By providing information, education, programs and services through agencies across the province, the provincial government supports Manitobans to become physically active. Looking for more information? Follow the links below for helpful information on active living and physical activity.

Recreational trails in Manitoba provide a wide variety of great places to get active with your family and friends and explore Manitoba’s great outdoors. Trails can be accessed year-round through activities such as walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling.
Manitoba’s parks and trails offer endless opportunities to be active all year long.
Regular daily activity creates a healthier, happier you - and you’ll build positive, lasting memories, too. Be sure to wear a helmet when cycling in parks and on trails!
Trails Manitoba is the official body responsible for the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) in Manitoba. In Manitoba the TCT is nearly 1,500 km long, winding through boreal shield, river-bottom forest, tall grass prairie, the Pembina Hills, western uplands, and more.
Trails Manitoba has been working closely with more than 20 local trail associations, the Government of Manitoba, and the National TCT organization t close the gaps on the TCT in Manitoba. The goal is to fully connect the TCT in Manitoba and acrosss the country by July 1, 2017 – Canada’s 150th Birthday.
