Quality Daily Physical Education Award Program

The Quality Daily Physical Education Award Program recognizes schools which offer QDPE, and encourages excellence in school physical education programs.

The QDPE Award Program requires schools to assess their physical education program based on a set criteria identified in the QDPE application form. 

The program is also an opportunity for schools to examine and reflect on the qualities and characteristics of their physical education program, highlighting successes and encouraging critical reflection for improvement. Any Canadian school can apply. Applications typically open between January and March each year. The 2019-2020 award application is now closed.
