2003 Capacity Study

Communicating the benefits of physical activity for children: A parent's perspective (2005) (ISBN 1-895724-45-7)

Physical inactivity during childhood has been linked to sedentary behaviour in adulthood. Statistics show 3 out of 5 Canadian children (aged 5-17) are not active enough for optimal growth and development. The 2003 Capacity Study examines how parents receive and understand physical activity messages for their children.
