Our Mission Statement
Our organization is pleased to provide the following statement as its
foundation for establishing healthy, active lifestyles for Mi'kmaw people
across Nova Scotia...
"The Mission Statement of MYRACL is based on the principles of
balance, on holistic choices, and building on the foundational pieces of
living healthy, active lifestyles on a daily basis. Improving the
overall quality of life through regular physical activity and healthy
eating will improve our ability to live longer lives. We, as an
organization, believe that we can do this by promoting well organized
sport, recreation and
healthy, active initiatives.
We believe that we also need to work to help
educate our grassroots people as well as our leadership on how
communities can begin to adopt the healthier ways of eating
for all age
groups in a safe, holistic and respectful manner".
MYRACL is aiming at educating the non-Aboriginal population
on its visions, its values with the idea of developing more
"holistic" athletes in the sporting communities and helping other Mi'kmaw
organizations in the on-going effort to build better communities through health education
and active living.
