RBC Learn to Play

Thank you for your support and interest in the three-year RBC Learn to Play Project, which we have now completed. Throughout the project, we were proudly able to support 591 organizations with $6.2 million in funding. As you continue to implement high-quality physical literacy programming within your community, we encourage you to consider getting involved with the ParticipACTION 150 Play List – a celebration of 150 years of active living and what it means to be truly Canadian. Thank you so much for your understanding and continued support.

Helping Kids Gain Confidence Through Play

Kids need to learn the basic skills of being active in order to develop the confidence and competence to participate in sport and physical activity – to have the opportunity to play with their friends and be healthy, happy and active for life. That’s why RBC, in partnership with ParticipACTION, the Public Health Agency of Canada and Sport for Life created the RBC Learn to Play Project – a multi–year funding commitment dedicated to supporting and encouraging more kids to get out and play.

Taking a new approach to getting kids more active, the RBC Learn to Play Project supports the promotion of physical literacy and the implementation of physical literacy principles in kids’ sport and physical activity programming at the community level.

At the centre of the RBC Learn to Play Project is a charitable commitment to provide grants from $1,000 to $25,000 that focus on improving the delivery of quality sport programming, and supporting the development and implementation of physical literacy principles in local organizations and communities across Canada.
