Section E : Barriers to participation

Summary

In this section, we explore respondents’ perceptions of the presence of potential barriers to participation in physical activity or sport as they relate to access to facilities including: convenience of hours and scheduling of programming, suitability of programming, getting to these facilities, and maintenance or safety issues. This section will also compare those who report that they participate in sport either as a player or in some other manner to the general population when exploring these topics.
