Articles and reports: 82-003-X201900800001


The purpose of this paper is to present an overview of the accelerometer-measured moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) levels of Canadian adults by age and sex, and adherence to physical activity guidelines from 2007 through 2017. A secondary purpose is to examine how the 10-minute bout stipulation affects levels of MVPA and adherence to the current physical activity guidelines. Data are from Cycle 1 (2007 to 2009), Cycle 2 (2009 to 2011), Cycle 3 (2012 to 2013), Cycle 4 (2014 to 2015) and Cycle 5 (2016 to 2017) of the Canadian Health Measures Survey.
