EFCL Community Walking Program
...find fitness, friends and fun!
With the support of a Recreation and Physical Activity Grant from Alberta Tourism and Culture, EFCL is offering the support communities need to start a walking program. Twenty community leagues have received leadership training through Urban Poling, plus Urban Poling start-up kits.
But it's not just about Nordic pole walking. If your community is interested in other forms of walking initiatives – we have support and resources for that too!
Walking is a growing trend in phsyical fitness and Community League Walking Programs are great way to particpate and meet your neighbours.
Walking with others

- Appropriate for all ages and abilities
- Familiarize yourself with the resources and amenities of your community
- Appreciate vitamin ‘N’ature
- Reduce crime by residents being visible on the street
