Bulletin 02: Physical activity levels of Canadian children and youth including Provincial Bulletins


The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute’s CANPLAY study (Canadian Physical activity Levels Among Youth study) has measured physical activity levels of children and youth using pedometers to measure daily steps. The majority of the analyses in this bulletin highlights the combined data collected in year five and six of the study (2009-2011), unless otherwise stated. Combining year 5 and 6 of data collection, the CANPLAY study shows that Canadian children, aged 5 to 19, take approximately 11,600 daily steps on average.
