December 23, 2016

The 2014-2015 Physical Activity Monitor asked Canadians (18 years and older) about their beliefs about the benefits of physical activity, including the prevention of heart disease, reducing stress, and maintaining the ability to do everyday tasks with age. In addition to the perceived benefits, the study explored Canadians’ perceptions about the level of their own activity for reaping these same benefits.
