Prescription to Get Active (RxTGA) is looking for 30 healthcare providers and fitness professionals to join a unique new program to help empower Canadians to become more physically active and make sustainable behaviour changes.

They will provide one-on-one support over a period of 12 weeks to help understand the individual’s goals and work to overcome any barriers. To do this, they will use a technique called Motivational Interviewing (MI) which is based, in part, on an integration of key health behavioural change elements including personal values, identifying barriers, goal setting, empowerment, self-confidence, championing and self-efficacy.


Successful applicants for these RxTGA volunteer activity coaching roles will be enrolled into a FREE two-day intensive MI training program and have the opportunity to practice those learned skills with a minimum of four participants.


The deadline to apply is Monday, Dec. 13, 2021. Simply complete the application form found in the full job description and submit it to Jeff Tareta, Executive Director at to apply.
