Healthy Kids All Kids

The Healthy Kids All Kids initiative will support a welcoming environment for all children to participate in local activities.  It will provide training and tools to local sport, art, culture and recreation organizations to support them in welcoming and including children from a range of backgrounds and experience.  Community events held throughout the next two years will highlight opportunities for all children to participate in programs and demonstrate less traditional activities.


As a member of the UNESCO Coalition of Inclusive Municipalities (CIC), the City of Brantford, working with Wilfrid Laurier University, developed the Inclusive Community Plan that includes three Guiding Principles:

  • Learn from each other
  • Stand up for each other
  • Celebrate each other

To build community involvement and empower newcomer and children and youth 0-14 with English as a second language through sports and activities.

How will we measure success?
  • Community partner participation in education/workshop/demonstration opportunities
  • Increased participation of newcomer/children with English as a second language in local community activities
  • Increased inclusive practices in local community activities
How are we going to get there?
  • Provide a variety of arts/sports /game demonstrations to welcome children to new/non-traditional activities.
  • Engage community partners to provide inclusive and welcoming low barrier activities for newcomers and children/youth with English as a second language.
  • Provide broad based education, training and support to local children’s groups, clubs and sporting associations to increase inclusivity and access.
