Stairway to Health

The Stairway to Health program is a simple and fun way for employees to get active and staying active.

How does it work?

The program helps employees increase their physical activity in the workplace by encouraging them to take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Recent evidence suggests workplace programs that promote moderate intensity lifestyle activities - like stair climbing - are more likely to be successful than programs with structured vigorous intensity exercise (Kerr et. al., 2001).

Health Canada's Stairway to Health website is designed to help workplace coordinators develop, manage and promote your own in house stairway initiative. So what are you waiting for?

Stairway to HealthThis free interactive resource includes:

  • Information and fact sheets promoting the benefits of stair climbing.
  • Motivational posters for download.
  • Step by step guides and interactive tools to help plan and evaluate your program.
  • Success stories from other Canadian companies.
