The 2014-2015 Physical Activity Monitor assessed factors associated with physical activity. The survey asked Canadian adults if they had heard about physical activity from a health professional in the year prior to the survey. In addition, questions were asked about perceptions of how physical activity contributes to certain health behaviours such as smoking cessation, choosing a healthy diet, and reducing the risk of obesity. This bulletin summarizes these findings in relation to individual, household, and community characteristics.
