PHE Canada provides a variety of grants and funding opportunities for schools in Canada as well as bursaries for graduate students to support ongoing research, learning and professional development of students and teachers. 

School funding plays a critical role for schools to achieve quality and equitable physical and health education programming. When we invest directly in school-centered PHE programs and teacher education, students benefit from a positive learning environment, better access to learning tools and materials, resulting in improved learning outcomes and well-being.
