Bulletin 14: Intention to Be Active
Bulletin 14 of the 2008 Physical Activity Monitor (PAM) asked Canadians about their intentions to become more active within the next six months. Almost half of Canadians say that they fully intend to be more active in the next six months, 45 percent have moderate-to-strong intentions, whereas 6 percent have little or no intention to become more active. The primary reason for the intention to be active was found to be staying fit or maintaining health.
