24-Hour Movement Guideline for Adults - Launch

Thursday October 15 Canada will be releasing new 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for adults. Full details on the release event are below.

There will also be a session on the new Guidelines at the upcoming CKA Kin Can Conference in November.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, with the right balance of physical activity and rest, plays an important role in Canadians' overall health, well-being, and quality of life, regardless of age. While much attention is given to healthy habits in children and youth, there remains a gap in what the recommended amounts of physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and sleep should be for adults over a 24-hour period.

Today, the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Health, announced more than $1.1 million to the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) to support the development of the Canadian 24‑Hour Movement Guidelines for Adults (18-64 years) and the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Older Adults (65 years and older). Once created, these guidelines will help inform Canadian adults of all ages of the amount of physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep that is recommended to be healthy.
