The Toronto Charter for Physical Activity: A Global Call for Action is a call to all countries to help make physical activity a priority for all. The Charter provides a framework for action and partnerships across multiple sectors and with communities to build healthier, active, environmentally sustainable communities. It is a result of two years of international drafting and global consultation with more than 400 individuals and organizations from 55 countries.
The Toronto Charter was ratified by delegates at the 3rd International Congress for Physical Activity and Health in May 2010 with overwhelming support for its call to all countries to seek greater political commitment, resources and community action to support health enhancing physical activity for all. Organizations and individuals interested in promoting physical activity can use this Charter to influence and unite decision makers at national, regional and local levels.
