ParticipACTION Report Cards
The 2021 PARTICPACTION ADULT REPORT CARD
Moving Toward a Better Normal
The 2021 Report Card looks at the impact COVID-19 has had on our physical activity levels and highlights how Canada faces a physical inactivity crisis deepened by the pandemic.
Public health guidelines meant park playdates, fitness classes and other once accessible ways to stay active either fell to the bottom of our priority lists or were no longer available. So, it’s no surprise that adults earned an “F” grade in sedentary behaviours and active transportation this year.
The health of Canadians is directly linked to their social and mental well-being, sense of belonging and inclusion, and ability to be productive and feel part of a community. These can all be positively impacted just by being active. That’s why everyone living in Canada needs to make physical activity a regular part of their everyday lives!

THE 2020 PARTICIPACTION REPORT CARD ON PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH
Families are critical influencers in children’s physical activity and healthy habits. Right now, families are physically closer than they have been for generations, as we collectively stay home to help contain the COVID-19 pandemic. Restricted access to playgrounds, physical school, childcare and playdates means the family’s impact has never been greater, but it’s also more challenging than ever to develop and maintain healthy habits at-home.
