Do you need a ‘Carrot’ to encourage Health and Active Living

Do you need a carrot or reward to do things that are beneficial to your health? How about more SCENE® points, Aeroplan® Miles, Petro-Points™, or More Rewards® points? Completing surveys, quizzes and learning about how to lead healthier lives, can also get you more points.

 

 

By downloading and using this app on your smartphone, you can collect rewards as you get active, eat healthy, quit smoking. Ontario’s investment in Carrot Rewards supports a one-year pilot for the app, with the goal of reducing the risk of chronic diseases by promoting healthy and active living. Approximately 200,000 people in Ontario are already actively using Carrot Rewards.

 

“Our government is supporting new, technology-driven initiatives that improve the health of people in Ontario. User-friendly digital tools empower people to take control of their own health, and the success of Carrot Rewards proves that people are ready to embrace innovative tools for their health and well-being.” — Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care.
