Registration is OPEN for the 2nd Annual Urban Portage Challenge (UPC).  

The UPC  is a step-tracking challenge which will take place provincially from August 15 to November 14, 2023.  The ultimate goal of the UPC is to support Métis people to become more physically active together.

There are “Community Champions” located throughout the province to support participants with registrations, step tracking reporting and encouragement. 

Participants interested in participating in UPC are encouraged to reach out to Rose-Anne Boyle at or Jason Jamieson at for further information.
