Winter Walk Day Feet iconWhat is Winter Walk Day?

On the first Wednesday of February each year, hundreds of thousands of Albertans take it outside to celebrate living in a beautiful winter province. Whether we’re grabbing our coffees and going for a office break walk, or going for an evening stroll through the neighbourhood with family, we all have the opportunity to get out and love our province of Alberta!

More people walking is great for our health, the environment, and helps strengthen communities.

On February 3rd, join over 160,000 Albertans for #WinterWalkDay! Grab a co-worker, a friend, or meet some neighbours, and remember to track your steps, as we show the rest of Canada that Alberta knows how to embrace winter!
