It takes a village...

The Healthy Kids Community Challenge is Ontario's new drive to support the health of our children. The City of Temiskaming Shores has been chosen to be a part of it. That means new ideas and programs are coming to our community - things that make it easier for children to be active and eat healthier. These are key components to good health through adulthood.

Let's make the healthy choice.

Water is the natural choice for our kids to stay healthy and hydrated. It is essential to keep their bodies working and growing properly. With water, there's no need to worry about sugar, calories, additives, preservatives, or caffeine. Let's get our kids drinking more water and see how it really does wonders.

Why Pledge?   To be a part of the solution!  Children are drinking way too many sugary drinks, which has a negative impact on their health and on the environment.  We can all help by making tap water easier to access and by not serving or selling sugary drinks to children.  By taking the pledge, you are affirming your commitment to help children sip less sugar.    Sign the pledge at and if you choose, your organization or family will be featured on our Hall of Pledges!



Check out our new Arena Boards at the New Liskeard and Haileybury Arenas!   Send us your best selfie of drinking your water after skating and we will post it on our site!    Healthy Kids Community Challenge  #WaterDoesWonders
