ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Adults
October 31, 2019
Description / Summary
ParticipACTION has released the first-ever Report Card on Physical Activity for Adults in Canada. Led by a team of Canadian researchers and stakeholders in the field of adult physical activity, the Adult Report Card represents a comprehensive synthesis of the literature and national surveys. The Adult Report Card shows Canadians need to make physical activity a key part of their everyday routines so they can Age Better. Physical inactivity and sedentary behaviour can lead to an increased risk of chronic diseases, cognitive decline, slips and falls, and social isolation. Encouragingly, research also shows that even small steps can make a difference in helping adults stay strong in mind and body, maintain mobility and build relationships.
