The Ontario Colleges Committee on Campus Recreation (OCCCR) is dedicated to providing opportunities for student participation through quality campus recreation programs and services. This committee creates an environment, which enhances the students’ educational experience through their involvement in recreational sports and active living.

The Active Living Program is a community of post-secondary institutions across Ontario who have come together with the ultimate goal to increase physical activity throughout the province. It was envisioned to provide students with a variety of unique fitness and recreational activities while also giving them the opportunity to meet others outside of their own school. The Active Living Program aims to enhance the college experience by allowing students to learn, participate, and stay active in new ways.
