About the Program

The Indigenous Fitness Leadership Certification program was designed by an experienced team of educators and fitness professionals to empower Indigenous people to deliver safe, high quality fitness programs in their communities that are culturally relevant and incorporate traditional learning methods. 

Participants who complete the program will receive certification recognized by the National Fitness Leadership Alliance (NFLA), enabling employment in the fitness industry.

The development and delivery of an Indigenous Fitness Leadership Certification program is an exciting opportunity for Indigenous people. More Indigenous people supporting our community members to be physically active, and potentially more engaged in sport, can only be seen as positive step in the right direction. 

-Joe Daniels, Aboriginal Coaching Module NCCP Facilitator

This pilot program is made possible through a funding agreement with the Department of Indigenous Services Canada, First Nations and Inuit Health Branch. 

The program supports the 89th Call to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, ensuring that barriers to participation in physical activity and fitness are reduced, and fitness programs are inclusive of Indigenous Peoples.
