About The Sandbox Project:
The Sandbox Project is an effort to make Canada the healthiest place on Earth for children and youth to grow up. It was created after research conducted by MP Dr. Kellie Lietch, for the Government of Canada, found that Canada is slipping behind its peer countries when it comes to key health indicators for children and youth. The Sandbox Project is focused on improving children and youth health outcomes with respect to injury prevention, obesity, mental health and the environment.
It is designed to pursue these important objectives in a collaborative manner with stakeholders and Canada's corporate community.
