This is the 10th anniversary of the most current and comprehensive annual assessment of the physical activity of children and youth in Canada. For the first time, this Report Card, titled Is Canada in the Running? reveals how Canada stacks up against 14 other countries. Launched at the 2014 Global Summit, this webinar will discuss the results of the Report Card, global comparisons, and key findings from the Global Summit.
If our policies, places, and programs are well developed, why is this not translating into enough activity for our kids? Join lead author, Joel Barnes, for a presentation and discussion about this year's results and key findings.
