Bulletin 2: Participation in organized physical activity and sport

Summary

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute examines the physical activity levels of children and youth through a study called CANPLAY (the Canadian Physical Activity Levels Among Youth Study). CANPLAY explores physical activity levels through the measurement of daily steps using pedometers, and also examines other factors associated with physical activity levels. In 2014-2016, the study data indicates that 77% of Canadian children, aged 5 to 19 participate in organized physical activity and sport.
