TrueNTH LM | Prescription to Get Active

Prescription to Get Active

What is a prescription to get active?

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are now able to prescribe the amount of activity you need to help improve your health and prevent disease. Four PCNs in Calgary are partnering with The City of Calgary Recreation to offer prescriptions for physical activity.

Recreation drop-in pass prescriptions

The City of Calgary Recreation will give you a 10 time drop-in pass when you show your prescription, provided by a PCN doctor at our pools and leisure centres.

Your drop-in pass gets you:

  • drop-in fitness classes
  • use of any facility amenities during public times

The first time you use your prescription, the facility will keep the prescription in exchange for the services they provide. We can only accept one prescription per person. The prescription is non-transferable, and can only be used once.

Please note this program is not available to existing pass holders.

How to get a Prescription to Get Active

Talk to your PCN family doctor or PCN health care team member about getting a Prescription To Get Active. They will assess your health needs.
