Every year from October 1st to 7th, Wellness Week activities take place in communities across New Brunswick to recognize efforts in promoting wellness and growing The Wellness Movement.

Check out the Wellness Events Calendar to see what is going on near you!

#WellnessWeekNB NBATC Facebook Contest

Tobacco-free living is an important aspect of wellness. The impact of supportive environments on our ability to lead a tobacco-free life is well documented, whether it is by limiting exposure to second and third-hand smoke, supporting those who are looking to quit smoking or implementing laws and regulations limiting access to tobacco products. The New Brunswick Anti-Tobacco Coalition (NBATC) is proud to be part of The Wellness Movement and to celebrate Wellness Week with a special Facebook contest to encourage New Brunswickers to show their appreciation for and celebrate smoke-free environments that support their wellness!

Visit the NBATC's Live Tobacco-Free in NB Facebook page from October 1st to 7th and watch for our special #WellnessWeekNB contest post. Comment on it by describing your favourite smoke-free place in New Brunswick and why you love the fact that it is smoke-free. It can be your home, car, workplace, school or any of the beautiful smoke-free outdoor spaces like restaurant patios, playgrounds, beaches, public trails and parks which, since July 2015, are required to be smoke-free and boast 'No vaping / No smoking' signs thanks to amendments to the Smoke-Free Places Act. Each comment equals one entry into our draw. If you include a photo of yourself in this favourite smoke-free place, your comment is worth two entries! Make sure to also like our Facebook page and share this post to inspire others to do the same. Prizes will be awarded by our friends at The Wellness Movement. 


Wellness Lives Here...

Did you know? Wellness is about more than individual lifestyle choices. Wellness is shaped by the people around us and the places where we live, learn, work and spend our free time. When we work together to make healthy choices more available, accessible and desirable, they become, with time, the natural choice, every time. Learn more about wellness supportive environments by visiting The Wellness Movement website
