Bulletin 17: Physical Education in Canada

2015 Opportunities for Physical Activity at Schools Study,

July 7, 2020

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute’s 2015 Opportunities for Physical Activity at School Survey asked school administrators about the availability of physical education in schools. Administrators were asked the approximate proportion of students that take at least one physical education class during school year, the average number of days of physical education in a given week and the average time per class. Based on this information, the total number of minutes per week was calculated. This bulletin summarizes the findings in these regards.
