The ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth is the most comprehensive assessment of child and youth physical activity in Canada.

This Report Card includes new Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Children and Youth: An Integration of Physical Activity, Sedentary Behaviour, and Sleep – the first of their kind in the world and, for the first time, assigns a Sleep grade.

Methodology & Data Sources

Our interdisciplinary research team identifies and assesses Report Card indicators to determine grade assignments based on the best available data, research and key issue areas from the past year, all of which is included in the Full Report. Consideration is also given to trends over time and disparities related to age, sex, household income, etc.
