CPAC Members

The Sun Life Financial Centre for Physically Active Communities (CPAC) has been providing physical activity programming for at-risk children in the Waterloo region community for the past 3 years through developed connections with the Regions school boards.  CPAC has effectively engaged hundreds of children in physical activity in this time.

CPAC is looking to engage with researchers across Laurier whose research and/or community outreach intersects with physical activity and health to continue to develop knowledge pertaining to physical activity and health. We hope to build a group of like-minded researchers who want to collaborate freely with, cooperate on small- and large-scale grants, and engage students in research. CPAC’s research is inclusive of the spectrum of research pertaining to physical activity and health, including, but not limited to:  designing effective spaces for people to engage in activity, the monetary costs of an inactive population, public policy on physical activity, health etc., the physiological benefits of physical activity, the costs of sedentary behaviour, physical education and literacy, nutrition and its role, how injury affects physical activity, and the list goes on.  All disciplines and areas of research are welcome. 

Any interested individuals who would like to become a member of the Centre are welcome to be apart of the membership.   We are hopeful that creating a membership to the Centre will allow faculty with similar interests to have an avenue for discussion and potential collaboration.  CPAC can also facilitate access to our physical activity programs for research. 

Please reach out to our Executive Director, Dr. Pam Bryden (pbryden@wlu.ca) to indicate your initial interest in joining this research initiative, providing a brief statement about your research/community outreach.  Attaching a CV would be useful as well, to determine the synergies across interested faculty.
