School Health Grant

The School Health Grant (SHG) supports school-level health promotion programs and initiatives. The SHG supports the health and well-being of students, complements the health and physical education curricula, reinforces healthy school policies, and engages the broader school community.

The grant application process asks school teams (students, teachers, parents) to look at their SHAPES student health reports, to identify school needs and priorities, and to develop an action plan to address them. Since 2009, 73% of schools have implemented 112 different projects.

Through a new partnership between the Provincial Government, go!PEI, and the Canadian Tire Active at School initiative, the SHG is supporting students in getting one hour of daily, quality, physical activity before, during, and after school through the provision of physical activity equipment.
