Bulletin 02: Participation in organized physical activity and sport

2015 kids CANPLAY (Pedometer study),

May 6, 2016

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute studies the physical activity levels of children and youth through a study called CANPLAY (the Canadian Physical Activity Levels Among Youth Study), which uses pedometers to measure daily steps. CANPLAY also examines other factors associated with physical activity levels of children and youth. Using data collected in 2014-2015, CANPLAY data shows that 77% of Canadian children, aged 5 to 19 participate in organized physical activity and sport.



The CFLRI is currently conducting a study of physical activity opportunities in Canadian schools. If you have received an invitation to participate in this and have any questions regarding the study please contact us at research_recherche@cflri.ca. Thank you for your participation!
