Mr. Speaker, we are honoured to have with us today senior officials from the Fitness Industry Council of Canada. Thanks to them, on Saturday, June 1, hundreds of Canadians will be taking part in National Health and Fitness Day.
With activities led by certified fitness professionals for people of all ages and abilities, National Health and Fitness Day will highlight the importance and impacts of a healthy lifestyle through fitness.
In Ottawa—Vanier, the Vanier Community Service Centre is organizing the Vanier VéloFest, an event aimed at getting young people on bikes.
I would like to thank the Fitness Industry Council of Canada for promoting public health and wellness for all ages and abilities across the country.
Here is the challenge for Canadians. I encourage them all to participate in and celebrate National Health and Fitness Day.
