Bulletin 13: Financial barriers for physical activity or sport facilities

2015 Survey of Physical Activity Opportunities in Canadian Communities,

February 28, 2018

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute’s 2015 Survey of Physical Activity Opportunities in Canadian Communities was developed to examine 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 barriers associated with funding of facilities to support physical activity among citizens. More specifically, they were asked to indicate the extent of difficulty for obtaining funding to develop and/or maintain facilities in support of physical activity. This bulletin describes these findings with respect to community characteristics.



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!
