The ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth is the most comprehensive assessment of child and youth physical activity in Canada. The Report Card synthesizes data from multiple sources, including the best available peer-reviewed research, to assign evidence-informed grades across 12 indicators. Over the years, the Report Card has been replicated in numerous cities, provinces and countries, where it has served as a blueprint for collecting and sharing knowledge about the physical activity of young people around the world.
The 2016 Report Card includes new Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Children and Youth: An Integration of Physical Activity, Sedentary Behaviour, and Sleep – the first of their kind in the world – and, for the first time, assigns a Sleep grade.
This webinar will present results from the 2016 Report Card including highlighting the new 24-Hour Guidelines, grades for each indicator, what this research means for Canadian children. We will also highlight key findings, research gaps, and areas of opportunity to improve healthy active living among children and youth. Participants will take away recommendations for turning research into action, including tools and resources to support the use of the Report Card and the 24-Hour Guidelines in their work.
This webinar is hosted by the Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance of Canada.
