Bulletin 04: Do more opportunities mean more physical activity?

Summary

Bulletin 4 of the 2009 Physical Activity Monitor investigates whether Canadians would be more active if more supports and facilities, such as safe places to walk/cycle, trails, and designated and non-designated facilities, were available. In addition, trends between 1999 and 2009 are looked at. Generally speaking, moderate proportions of Canadians say that having  more supports and facilities available in the community would increase their own personal usage.
