What can you do to support a Healthy Society in Pickering?

You can get involved in your community in the following ways:

The City’s Eyes on the Street Program is an effective way people can report neighbourhood concerns like graffiti, illegal dumping, litter, or vandalism by telephone or online.

Neighbourhood Watch is another program that encourages neighbours to work together in support of community safety. Talk to your neighbours and Durham Regional Police if you would like to participate.

Physical activity improves health. The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology suggests a total of 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity aerobic activity each week for adults.

Your eating habits also affect your health. Consider increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables you eat and avoiding foods and beverages with little or no nutritional value.

Make use of Pickering’s trails, such as the waterfront trail or the Seaton Hiking Trail. Find out where they are, enjoy them and encourage your family and friends to do so too.
