Bulletin 5: Active transportation among children and youth

2014-2016 kids CANPLAY (Pedometer study),

July 7, 2020

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute studies the physical activity levels of children and youth through a study called CANPLAY (the Canadian Physical Activity Levels Among Youth Study), which uses pedometers to measure daily steps. The study also examines other factors associated with activity levels, including the use of active modes of transportation.



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!
