2015 ParticipACTION Report on Physical Activity

The 2015 ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth: The Biggest Risk is Keeping Kids Indoors was released .  

The ParticipACTION Report Card (formerly the Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card) provides a comprehensive assessment of the current state of physical activity for children and youth in Canada.

For the first time, the Report Card takes a stand on play in nature and the outdoors—with its risks—and includes a Position Statement on Active Outdoor Play.

The main message of the report card is that kids move more and sit less when they play outdoors, and have some freedom to roam and take risks. The following materials are available on ParticipACTION’s website:

  • A Highlight Report which summarizes the 2015 cover story, indicators and grades.
  • A Full Report which includes background on our methodology and process, in-depth analyses, summaries of key research, charts and figures and complete references.
  • Communications tools to support the dissemination of the Report Card findings in presentations, social media, on websites and in newsletters.
