Active Healthy Kids Canada

2015_report_card.jpgParticipACTION is pleased to present the ParticipACTION Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth. The ParticipACTION Report Card provides a comprehensive assessment of the current status of physical activity for children and youth in Canada.

The ParticipACTION Report Card (formerly the Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card) provides a comprehensive assessment of the current state of physical activity for children and youth in Canada.

Active Healthy Kids Canada developed the first Report Card in 2005 with the goal to power the movement to get kids moving. Over the last 10 years, more than 80,000 individuals and organizations have used the Report Card to advocate for and devise solutions to enhance physical activity opportunities for children and youth.

Materials are available on their website.

In 2014, Active Healthy Kids Canada began winding down its operations and the leadership of the Report Card was assumed by ParticipACTION, a long-term strategic partner. ParticipACTION will continue to work with its strategic research partner, the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute (HALO-CHEO), to deliver the much anticipated comprehensive assessment of child and youth physical activity in Canada. Active Healthy Kids Canada was established as a charitable organization in 1994 to advocate the importance of quality, accessible, and enjoyable physical activity participation experiences for children and youth. As a national leader in this area, Active Healthy Kids Canada provides expertise and direction to decision makers at all levels, from policy-makers to parents, in order to increase the attention given to, investment in, and effective implementation of physical activity opportunities for all Canadian children and youth.

The Report Card has been developed annually since 2005. Click on the image below to see the archived reports.
