Bulletin 17: Source of funding for physical activity facilities and programs

2015 Survey of Physical Activity Opportunities in Canadian Communities,

March 30, 2018

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute conducted the 2015 Survey of Physical Activity Opportunities in Canadian Communities which looked at factors associated with physical activity and sport at the local or community level. Municipal administrators (in communities with at least 1,000 residents) were asked about potential sources of funding for the provision of sport and physical activity facilities and programming. This research bulletin explores these sources in relation to community characteristics. Table 1 summarizes the percentage of communities which indicated a source of funding for facilities, programming, or both facilities and programming related to physical activity.



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!
