Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines

The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) is the resource for translating advances in exercise science research into the promotion of fitness, performance, and health outcomes for Canadians. CSEP sets the highest standards for qualified exercise professionals through evidence-based practice and certification.

Canada has developed 24-Hour Movement Guidelines, providing guidance on the optimal amount of physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and sleep – and the best combination of these behaviours – for Canadians of all ages.

24 Hour Movement Guidelines have now been developed for the following age groups and target populations:

Early Years (0 - 4)

Children & Youth (5 -17)

Adult (18 - 64)

Adults (65+)


Multiple Sclerosis

In addition to the guidelines themselves, related resources can also be accessed at the CSEP website

On Sept. 29, 2016 Dr. Peter Katzmarzyk was hosted by the University of Manitoba, Health, Leisure and Human Performance Research Institute to make a presentation on the Movement Guidelines. Dr. Katzmarzyk was on the development team for the guidelines. To access a recording of the presentation click here
