The ParticipACTION Community Challenge is a national physical activity that encourages everyone to get active throughout the month of June.
In 2021, North Grenville was crowned Canada's Most Active Community, which came with a $100,000 prize. The money was used to upgrade playground equipment and recreational amenities in North Grenville’s rural hamlets.
In 2022 AND 2023, North Grenville led a campaign to defend our title and was crowned Ontario’s Most Active Community, earning $7,500 for each year.
