The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute’s 2015 Opportunities for Physical Activity at School survey asked school administrators about the components of physical activity programming such as increasing participation rates in sports and play, developing positive skills, attitudes, and behaviours, and promoting or increasing inclusivity of all individuals. This bulletin summarizes the findings with regards to the components related specifically to fostering inclusiveness in physical activity programming at school. Specifically, the survey asked about the degree of emphasis placed on: increasing participation among certain segments of the school population (i.e. girls, students with a disability, specific groups), and ensuring equal opportunities and safe play for all students.
