About City of Port Colborne

Located on the south coast of the scenic Niagara region, Niagara’s Port of Call has found the perfect balance – successful industrial and commercial sectors, comfortable and scenic residential areas, white sand beaches, unique culinary choices, the world class Sugarloaf Marina, fishing, golfing, trails, shopping districts along the historic Welland Canal and an energized festival and entertainment scene that includes live theatre – truly a community that adds to the overall Niagara Experience.

 

About National Health & Fitness Day:

The goal of NHFD is to make Canada the Fittest Nation on Earth! National Health and Fitness Day was formalized into law after the passing of Bill S-211 in 2014.

To keep the initiative as locally-driven as possible, we encourage communities to pass a proclamation recognizing the first Saturday in June, National Health and Fitness Day, and to offer health and fitness programming on the day. Given the rising crisis of inactivity Canada, we believe that initiatives such as this are a key step in helping to build healthier and more active communities.
