The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute conducted two waves of its Impact of COVID-19 on Physical Activity survey in November-December of 2020 and then again in March 2021. The survey asked about current physical activity and sport participation, and how it relates to their pre-pandemic activity regime. At the time of the surveys, 32% of adults stated that they were considerably active (at least 30 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity –MVPA –on at least 5 days of the week), whereas 24% indicated participation at this level on 3 to 4 days per week, and 43% reported MVPA of at least 30 minutes for less than 3 days of the week.
