Knowledge, awareness, and uptake of new Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines

Being physically active is associated with many health benefits. To help guide people on how much activity they need for optimal health, the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology developed new Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines for all age groups. Specifically, this work will look at assessment, awareness, and uptake of the new guidelines as it relates to Canadians, their families, and their health care providers. Research from many different groups will be brought together and presented to researchers, parents, teachers, and practitioners with the hopes of raising awareness of the new guidelines. This work will aim to produce a scientific paper, a conference presentation, and help to inform the process to update future guidelines.
