Bulletin 06: Social Norms and Walking
Walking offers a low cost, easy way to accumulate sufficient levels of physical activity. The Canadian Physical Activity Guide to Healthy Active Living recommends that adults go for a brisk walk at least four times a week for at least 30 minutes on each occasion. The more Canadians see others walking to commute or for recreation, the more it will be seen as attractive or as part of our national culture.
