Canadian Tire is on a mission to get the country to play

Our friends at Canadian Tire are on a mission to get the country to go outside and play.

It sounds simple but according to a recent health survey, 90% of children and youth do not get the appropriate level of daily physical activity.

Canadian Tire aims to change that and give out same great prizes along the way to those who join them on their mission.

There are daily draws for gift cards, possibility of a contest submission appearing on a Canadian Tire ad, a trip for four to Sweden for the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship. Entry deadline to win the grand prize is December 5.

All Canadians have to do to be eligible to win these prizes, is to share their passion for play either in writing, by photo or video.

Inspire Canadians to play by sharing stories in the Heroes of Play contest.

We all play for Canada.
