To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, ParticipACTION created the ParticipACTION 150 Play List. This is the ultimate list of 150 physical activities that Canadians take part in.

As it turns out, we as citizens participate in a wide array of activities to stay fit, ranging from curling and lacrosse to snow fort building. There are also some weird ways we spend our fitness time (like playing Pickleball, an activity that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis).
