Bulletin 07: Information for the Development of Physical Activity and Sport Programming

2015 Survey of Physical Activity Opportunities in Canadian Communities,

October 31, 2016

In the previous bulletin in this series municipal administrators were asked to identify what information they considered to be useful for informing residents about becoming more active (Bulletin 6). An overwhelming majority (79%) cited ‘information about ways to inspire Canadians to be more active’ as important for facilitating participation. The 2015 Survey of Physical Activity Opportunities in Canadian Communities also asked municipal administrators to identify information they feel is useful for informing the development of physical activity and sport programming and services. This bulletin will aim to highlight these findings both overall and by region and community size.
