After a strong showing in 2021, the Salisbury area is ready to reach even greater heights in this year’s ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge!

Each year, communities compete to be named “Canada’s Most Active Community” and win either the grand prize of $100,000 or a provincial top prize of $15,000. Last year, Salisbury was in the top 2% in Canada, 28th overall, and 3rd in New Brunswick!

The Challenge runs from June 1-30.

You can register by downloading the ParticipACTION app to track your Move Minutes each day (and if you are not comfortable with downloading or do not have access to devices, keep track of your minutes and email them to and we can enter them for you).

Saturday, June 4th will be our kick-off event at Highland Park starting at 5pm. This event will include a washer toss tournament, games for kids, beavertails, hot dogs, and we will finish the night with a bonfire and music by Star 69. You will receive a ballot for every lap you do around the Wetland Trail and a ballot for downloading the app for a chance to win prizes.

Check this website and our Facebook pages (Salisbury Petitcodiac Recreation, Salisbury ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge) for information on our events and activities during June.
