2016-2018 Physical Activity Monitor (Adult focus),

March 29, 2019

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute’s 2016-2018 Physical Activity Monitor examined Canadians’ participation in sport and found that 25% of adults (18 years and older) indicate that they participate in sport (see Bulletin no. 1 in this series). The survey also asked about the nature of their participation, including the degree of structure of the environment, the use of coaching, training, and the level of competition.
