Results from Canada’s 2018 Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and YouthJournal of Physical Activity and Health (2018)
The majority of children and youth in Canada are not meeting the physical activity recommendation (at least 60 minutes of moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity per day) within the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Children and Youth.1 This relatively stable trend over the past decade is concerning given the negative health consequences linked to physical inactivity, particularly in adulthood.2 To better understand this concern, several indicators of child and youth physical activity are measured periodically in Canada and compiled into Canada’s Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth. The purpose of this paper is to summarize the results of the 2018 Report Card.
