Physical Activity

Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines

The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) has developed a set of 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for the early years (0 – 4), children and youth (5-17), adults (18-64) and for older adults (65+). These guidelines show us what a healthy 24-hour period looks like – including physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep recommendations. You can find more detailed information on our Physical Activity pages for:

Alerts:

1) Our offices are temporarily closed to the public to allow us to respond to COVID-19 demands. Phone lines remain open. Please access our media release for more information.

2) Returning travellers must self-isolate for 14 days and contact Public Health if symptoms of COVID-19 develop.

If you have returned from travel anywhere outside of Canada, you must self-isolate for 14 days and immediately contact Public Health or your local health care provider if you develop symptoms of COVID-19. Earlier this month all travellers were asked to self-isolated when they returned to Canada. Effective March 25, the federal government made this isolation mandatory under the Quarantine Act to better protect our most vulnerable citizens. Each of us must make the responsible decision to follow the advice of health authorities. It’s in everyone’s best interest to do everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19.
