TOWARDS A COMMON VISION TO MOVE BETTER AND LIVE BETTER

2018 NATIONAL KINESIOLOGY WEEK

OTTAWA, November 12, 2018 – Experts agree that nearly half of Canadian adults are not physically active enough to benefit their health and well-being, and despite many well-intended campaigns, this trend does not seem to be improving. This is why the Canadian Kinesiology Alliance (CKA), as part of the 2018 National Kinesiology Week taking place from November 12 to 18, salutes the Let’s Get Moving report, the latest initiative from the Government of Canada to create a common vision where all Canadians move more and sit less, more often. The CKA agrees that it is only through the collaboration of the community, the government and private and public sectors, that physical activity will be increased and sedentary living reduced across all generations.

2018 PARTICIPACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth

THE 2018 PARTICIPACTION REPORT CARD ON PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH was released in June “The Brain + Body Equation”. Canadian kids need active bodies to build their best brains. All kids deserve to thrive in mind and body. But in order for them to reach their full mental, emotional and intellectual potential, their bodies have to move to get the wheels in their brains turning. The Report Card is the most comprehensive assessment of child and youth physical activity in Canada. It synthesizes data from multiple sources, including the best available peer-reviewed research, to assign evidence-informed grades across 14 indicators.

The Report Card has been replicated in over 50 cities, provinces and countries, where it has served as a blueprint for collecting and sharing knowledge about the physical activity of young people around the world.
