2015 Series: Physical activity and sport for everyone

Summary

Only five percent of Canadian children and youth meet the recommended guideline of 60 minutes of moderate- to vigorous-physical activity every day,

Guidelines. Research, however, has shown that certain groups of children and youth are less active than others.
