Bulletin 12: Financial assistance to support physical activity within the community

2015 Survey of Physical Activity Opportunities in Canadian Communities,

January 30, 2018

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute conducted the 2015 Survey of Physical Activity Opportunities in Canadian Communities which examined factors associated with physical activity and sport at the local or community level. In the survey, municipal administrators (in communities with at least 1,000 residents) were asked about their promotion or use of financial programs to help support families to participate in physical activity and sport, when cost is a barrier. In addition, they were asked whether they provide a discounted fee structure for supporting and promoting physical activity. This bulletin describes these findings with respect to community characteristics.
