Policy Evaluation

Canada has 3 national policies (i.e., A Common Vision for Increasing Physical Activity and Reducing Sedentary Living in Canada, 2018; A Framework for Recreation in Canada 2015: Pathways to Wellbeing; Canadian Sport Policy 2012) which outlines strategies for increasing physical activity and reducing sedentary behaviours among Canadians. The CFLRI understands the importance of ongoing evaluation of policies to determine if intended outcomes are being achieved. To this end, the CFLRI is committed to exploring the impact these national policies and other physical activity related strategies/guidelines are having on the creation of environments that are more conducive to leading an active lifestyle for all Canadians.

Population Studies

The CFLRI monitors changes in rates of physical activity and sport participation among the Canadian population. This is achieved through the Physical Activity and Sport Monitoring Programs. Use the custom data table feature to gain access to the most recent population-level data.


Settings-Based Studies

Every five years or so the CFLRI undertakes a variety of studies to examine policies, practices, and opportunities in support of physical activity and sport participation of Canadians in key settings such as; municipalities, schools, and in workplaces. Data from these studies provide a unique illustration of opportunities available for Canadians as a whole and among specific sub-groups (e.g., students, employees).
