Bulletin 02: Increasing awareness of physical activity

2007 Opportunities for Physical Activity at Work Study,

February 10, 2009

Workplaces are in a particularly strong position to increase awareness of the benefits of physical activity to working Canadians, as they provide access to large proportions of the population (two thirds of Canadians aged 15+ work full or part time), structure in the form of existing information and communication systems, social support, and access to facilities or opportunities. The 2007-08 Opportunities for Physical Activity at Work Survey explores the availability and awareness of physical activity resources in Canadian workplaces.
