national get outside day

Get Outside Day, a movement to encourage the Canadian government to declare Friday, July 17th a national holiday, giving Canadians more time to enjoy our country’s great outdoors. As a nation defined by its landscape, Coleman Canada was shocked to find out that that almost two thirds of Canadians (63 per cent) spend less than two hours per week outside doing recreational activities. Getting outside is important for optimal health and is integral to our national identity. With many Canadians citing lack of time as a barrier to getting outside, now more than ever, we need to take time to get outside, and what better way to achieve this than to demand the time to do so?
