NL Sports Centre

Wellness Policy

The Newfoundland and Labrador Sport Centre recognizes that health and wellness are important priorities of the province. As a provincial training facility, as well as a facility utilized by the community, we have an opportunity to create an environment that promotes and supports healthy active living:

We will do our best to:
  • Support an environment that is welcoming to breastfeeding families.
  • Maintain vending options to include healthier choices identified in Canada’s Food Guide.
  • Ensure consistent advertising/messaging that aligns with health and wellness (e.g. eliminate the promotion of sugar-sweetened beverages).
  • Encourage community groups and organizations to have food and beverage options from Canada’s Food Guide available during events.
  • Promote nutrition month and other healthy eating initiatives.
  • Partner and promote local community-based healthy eating initiatives and supports such as Eat Great and Participate.
  • Choose green options when possible.
  • Choose local options when possible.
  • Ensure staff are aware and understand this policy.
