The ParticipACTION 150 Play List announcement you can’t miss

This is possibly the most epic project ParticipACTION has ever taken on. It’s huge. It’s awe-inspiring. There will be events across the nation. Bigger prizes than the Price is Right. And more activities than you can imagine.

It’s called the ParticipACTION 150 Play List – the ultimate list of Canadian activities.

That’s right, to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday we’re creating a list of the 150 most Canadian activities out there. Then, in 2017 we’re challenging Canadians everywhere to complete as many activities on the list as possible for chances to win spectacular prizes like activity trackers, trips across Canada, and a new car!

But as you can imagine, creating such an epic list is hard. From sports like hockey (obviously) and lacrosse, to everyday activities like snow shoveling and raking leaves, to schoolyard games like hopscotch and 4-square, there are a lot of activities to cover. That’s why we need your help.

We need you to submit ideas and vote for your favourite activities.We need you to make sure no amazing Canadian activity is missed and that the activities that truly make us Canadian get voted to the top.  

How can you do that?

Go here and vote! See what activities are already on the list, vote for your favourites, and suggest ones that need to be added.

Then scroll down to the bottom and input your email address to receive all the latest news about the Play List. You’ll receive a heads up when the program officially launches in January so that you’ll be able to start tackling the list as soon as possible.

You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay up-to-date on what’s happening, including cool contests, practical tips and even more opportunities to get involved. You can also join the social media debate about which activities are the most Canadian by using the #150PlayList hashtag.


Finally, be sure to check out the video to meet Sara, our Play List ambassador, who will be travelling across the country in 2017 while completing all 150 activities along the way.

*The ParticipACTION 150 Play List is enthusiastically supported by the Government of Canada, premier corporate partners Manulife, Chevrolet and Shaw, the Government of B.C. and national media partner, Corus.
