What is Healthy Kids Greater Sudbury ? 

Healthy Kids Greater Sudbury is a community partnership led by the City of Greater Sudbury that offers programs and information to help you keep your kids happy, healthy, active and eating well. Join us!

All kinds of groups have joined forces in our community – public health, recreation centres, schools and businesses, to name just a few. Our goal: help make our community a place where it’s easy for kids to be healthy and active. You can be a part of making it happen.

Join the conversation on facebook, or email or call us with your ideas!

We look forward to working with you to help keep our kids active and healthy!
