Development for the world’s first 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Adults and Older Adults underway

OTTAWA, June 19, 2019  – Physical activity is a cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle. Yet increasingly we are seeing that Canadians of all ages are choosing sedentary activities over active ones.

This week, the Government of Canada announced funding for the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) to develop the world’s first 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Adults and Older Adults. The 24-Hour Movement Guidelines will recommend the right amounts of physical activity, sleep, and sedentary time for a healthy 24-hours.
