Health and Wellness measures the percentage of survey respondents who report that their participation in services and programs offered by the City of Edmonton have contributed to their health and wellness.
Survey results were collected from registered users of the facilities, programs and services offered by Edmonton's Citizen Services as well as a random telephone survey.
City of Edmonton programs and services are intended to increase Edmontonians’ health and wellness. A healthy city is an active one, and the City's programs and facilities contribute to the well-being of individuals and communities.
Recreation is important because:
- It has the potential to reduce costs related to challenges such as obesity and sedentary living
- It contributes to good physical and mental health
- It is a fundamental need in all ages and stages in life
