      Description:

      The fitness levels of Canadian adults declined substantially between 1981 and the years 2007 to 2009, suggesting a reduction in population health. This paper updates the fitness trends of Canadians aged 20 to 69 years by extending the time period to 2017.

      Description:

      While lockdown periods and physical distancing measures are fundamental in reducing virus transmission, prolonged restrictions may lead to reduced engagement in physical activity and exercise. This article examines changes in reported physical activity from before to during the COVID-19 pandemic. More specifically, it examines changes in the proportion of Canadians meeting physical activity guidelines, as well as changes in the types of physical activity reported. The article explores differences between youth (aged 12 to 17), adults (aged 18 to 64) and older adults (aged 65 and over).

    • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202000500002
      Description:

      Canada recently adopted the 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Children and Youth (24-Hour Guidelines) for young people aged 5 to 17 years-an international first, providing integrated recommendations for physical activity, sedentary time and sleep. Since the release of the guidelines, very few studies have examined the associations of adherence to the 24-Hour Guidelines with health outcomes-and none focus on psychosocial health. Therefore, the objective of this study was to assess the associations of meeting the 24-Hour Guidelines and their behaviour-specific recommendations with psychosocial health among Canadian children and youth.

    • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201801200001
      Description:

      The objective of this study is to compare estimates of physical activity among adults from a newly developed Canadian questionnaire with those obtained objectively by accelerometry. Data for 18- to 79-year-olds were collected in 2014 and 2015 as part of the Canadian Health Measures Survey. Moderate-to-vigorous physical activity was reported on the household questionnaire by domain (transportation, recreation, and occupational or household) as part of the new Physical Activity Adult Questionnaire (PAAQ) and measured objectively using the Actical accelerometer.

      Description:

      This chapter of Women in Canada presents a life course perspective of the physical, mental and social health of girls and women in Canada. It is intended to provide a summary of various aspects of women’s health, based on available recent survey and administrative data, as well as findings from published research papers and reports. It begins with a general overview of female health in Canada - with a look at the social determinants of health and the health of women who are immigrants to Canada - followed by four sections that describe female health in childhood, in adolescence, in adulthood, and at older ages. Each of these sections includes information on various health behaviours, disease and chronic conditions, and mental health. Sexual activity and reproduction are also examined, beginning in adolescence.
