The new, 2019 Ontario Health and Physical Education curriculum includes both Physical Literacy and Health Literacy. Health literacy involves the skills needed to get, understand and use information to make good decisions for health.
The Healthy Living strand is divided into five health topics:
Personal Safety and Injury Prevention
Substance Use, Addictions, and Related Behaviours
Human Development and Sexual Health
Mental Health Literacy.
Our resources focus on the expectations for Health Literacy. Use our resources to support students in acquiring the knowledge and skills they need to develop, maintain, and enjoy healthy living, as well as to solve problems and set goals related to their personal health and mental health and well-being.
