Don’t miss out on the health benefits associated with physical activity! Get moving with the Active Switch Campus Program by choosing active travel modes for your commute and other daily trips.


The Active Switch campus online tool allows faculty, staff and students to set goals, track and monitor progress and converts the distance travelled to illustrate the amount of calories you have burned and greenhouse gas emissions you have saved.

Track all your active trips on activeswitch.ca/campus for a chance to win monthly prizes!

Note: Please select "Lakehead University - Orillia Campus"  under the City of Orillia when creating an account on Active Switch.
