Richmond’s online hub provides activities and other connection opportunities to bring people together during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Opportunities on Richmond Connects include live-streamed fitness classes, virtual tours and book clubs, movie screenings, participatory challenges and public art engagements.

There are virtual recreation activities for every age related to physical activity, sport, arts, culture and heritage, as well as wellness resources and creative stay-at-home challenges. In addition to enhancing individual and community well-being, Richmond Connects continues to highlight Richmond as an active and healthy community during this unprecedented time.

Some highlights include:

• Anti-Boredom Challenges (ABCs): simple and creative challenges for school-aged children, released bi-weekly, that require minimal to no equipment.

• Special events: many of the city’s events have moved online including Doors Open Richmond, Pride Week 2020 and more.

• Reliable resources: information about agencies and organizations including the City of Richmond Physical Literacy Team, Active for Life, ParticipACTION and Walk Richmond.

• Virtual tours: some facilities are engaging visitors in virtual tours including Britannia Shipyards, Steveston Tram and the Richmond Art Gallery.

• Fitness at your finger tips: Join some of your favourite fitness coordinators and instructors as they offer virtual exercises and live-streamed classes.
