  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202301100002
    Description: On average, 45% of Canadian adults meet the recommended 150 minutes per week of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. Using six combined cycles of the Canadian Health Measures Survey (2007 to 2019), this study examines how the percentage of Canadian males and females aged 18 to 79 years meeting the physical activity recommendation differs across socio-demographic, family arrangement and health factors. The purpose of this paper is to determine how sex, age and family arrangement intersect with known risk factors for physical inactivity to identify groups within the Canadian population most at risk of not meeting the physical activity recommendation.

    Description: The COVID-19 pandemic had a detrimental impact on the physical activity and screen time of youth, in particular among girls. Using The Canadian Community Health Survey, the purpose of this study is to give an update on the screen time and physical activity habits of Canadian youth in 2021 by providing a comparison with values previously reported before and during the first year of the pandemic. This study takes a focused look at how the physical activity and screen time of boys and girls were affected differently.

    Description: Canadian and international research have shown that the COVID-19 pandemic led to changes in health behaviours, including participation in physical activity and screen time. Using The Canadian Community Health Survey, the purpose of this study is to compare screen time and physical activity before and during the 2020 and 2021 pandemic years among Canadian adults and older adults.

    Description:

    Data on meeting the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for adults (24-H Guidelines) and associations with health indicators by body mass index (BMI) class are needed to support public health surveillance. Using data from the cross-sectional Canadian Health Measures Survey, this study aims to describe the proportion of Canadian adults meeting individual and various combinations of the 24-H Guidelines by BMI class and their association with health indicators.

    Description:

    Canadian adults spend a large proportion of their day engaged in sedentary behaviour, which in excess, is a risk factor for hypertension, obesity, depression, chronic conditions and premature mortality. Using data from the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) and the new Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Adults aged 18-64 years and 65 years and older, the purpose of this study is to compare the percentages of Canadians meeting three different sedentary thresholds (less than and equal to 3 hours per day of screen time, less than and equal to 7 per day of self-reported sitting time and less than and equal to 9 hours per day of accelerometer-measured sedentary time).

    Description:

    The physical activity (PA) recommendation was recently revised in the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Adults. The 150 minutes per week of moderate-to-vigorous intensity PA (MVPA) went from requiring that MVPA be accrued in bouts of 10 minutes or more (bouted) to having no bout requirement (non-bouted). Using adult accelerometer data from three combined cycles of the nationally representative Canadian Health Measures Survey, this study compared adherence to the bouted and non-bouted recommendations, and assessed differences in sociodemographic, health and fitness measures.

    Description:

    Canadian and international research has shown that the COVID-19 pandemic has led to changes in health behaviours, including physical activity. The purpose of this study is to compare physical activity before and during the COVID-19 pandemic by comparing the September through December 2020 data from the 2020 The Canadian Community Health Survey to October through December data from the 2018 CCHS. This study examines this comparison through a health equity lens to illustrate the differential impact across the Canadian population in the domain of physical activity.

    Description:

    Canadians have been gravely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and adults living with children may have been disproportionately impacted. The objective of this study was to describe changes in chronic disease risk factors and current exercise habits among adults living with and without a child younger than 18 years old.

    Description:

    This study provides an update on the sleep behaviours (duration, quality, work and free day variability, and timing) of Canadian adults and how they align with recommendations from the 24-Hour Movement Guidelines. It also examines the proportion of adults meeting sleep duration recommendations based on sociodemographic characteristics, sleep behaviours, physical activity and screen time.

    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).

    Description:

    The shift by Canadians to a more physically distanced life resulted in a dramatic reduction in the transmission of COVID-19. However, there are concerns that health behaviours, including physical activity, have consequently changed in ways that will result in an unintended increase in the risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes and cancer. This study looks at how many Canadians could develop cardiovascular disease over the next three years because of reduced levels of physical activity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
