In 2005, 18% of all Canadians (aged 15 and older) reported belonging to a club, a local community league or other local or regional amateur sport organization, down 1 percentage-point from the 19% belonging to sport clubs or leagues in 1998.

The tendency to belong to a sport club increased with higher levels of education and income. The same pattern was evident in the 1998 and 1992 GSS data.
