Centre for Active Living


In 1989, Drs. Art Quinney and Gerry Glassford from the University of Alberta, and Alfred Nikolai and Dr. Steve West from the Government of Alberta worked together to create the Alberta Centre for Well-Being, a community-focused organization committed to enhancing the health and well-being of Albertans. The Centre provided leadership and educational opportunities for well-being professionals, and most importantly, bridged the gap between research and practice through coordinated, collaborative efforts.

In 2001, the Alberta Centre for Well-Being (ACFWB) transitioned to become the Alberta Centre for Active Living (ACAL), and later the Centre for Active Living (CAL), strategically focusing its research and education efforts around physical activity, and subsequently, sedentary behaviour.

CAL created numerous infographics, fact sheets, reports and resources. These resources can be found through the links below.
