B.C.’s the first to get UpNGo
A program to get workers up and moving while on the job has rolled out in B.C., and it will be stretching the legs of employees across Canada by the fall. UpNGo with Participaction was launched Monday by federal Health Minister Jane Philpott, B.C.’s Minister of Health Terry Lake and Elio Antunes, president and CEO of Participaction. Participants receive points redeemable online for health products if they meet personal goals and complete challenges. The Public Health Agency of Canada and B.C.’s Ministry of Health are among several partners investing in the $7.5-million project.
