Bulletin 07: Primary location and fees for after-school programming

2015 kids CANPLAY (Pedometer study),

October 31, 2016

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute studies physical activity levels of children and youth through a study called CANPLAY (the Canadian Physical Activity Levels Among Youth Study) using pedometers to measure daily steps. The CANPLAY study also asked a subsample of Canadian parents about access to a supervised after school program for children and youth, and described these findings in an earlier bulletin in this series (Bulletin 6). Among the 52% of parents who indicated that their child had access to a supervised after school program, questions were also asked about the primary location of this programming. This current bulletin summarizes the study’s findings in this regard.
