Sun Life Financial Centre for Physically Active Communities

The Sun Life Financial Centre for Physically Active Communities (CPAC) is a community outreach program that aims to improve activity levels and the overall health of youth within our community. We provide free or low-cost physical activity programming to high-priority youth to prevent chronic illnesses associated with sedentary lifestyles.

CPAC is an initiative of the Laurier Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education (KPE), designed to connect undergraduate and graduate students to community organizations on and off campus. Building on the skills and enthusiasm of Laurier students, and catalysed by generous donations, CPAC is able to offer diverse programming for children in our community who may not have access to such programming otherwise.

CPAC was founded in 2016 by two Laurier professors, Kimberley Dawson and Pamela Bryden. Their goal was to share their departmental resources and educational experiences with the community in the shared objective of having more youth become physically active. By connecting their departmental resources and students with members of the community, it is the hope that the final outcome of improved health will benefit many youth within the Waterloo Region.

We invite you to learn more about our various programs, how to get involved and what others say about our programs. We also invite you to take part in one of our interesting research initiatives.
