Our Work

The Alberta Survey on Physical Activity, the annual Physical Activity Forum, and a body of original resources and publications represent important aspects of the Centre's work.

Centre Resources & Projects

Work of the Centre offer insights, practical resources and ideas for current practice. Our work addresses a range of topics using various modes: infographics, research and general reports, and websites focused on specific topics.

Alberta Survey on Physical Activity

The biennial Alberta Survey on Physical Activity, conducted by the Centre since 1993, monitors and reports on the physical activity levels of adult Albertans. Archived reports are available.

Physical Activity Forum

The annual Physical Activity Forum focuses on a timely active living topic, while highlighting the work of a prominent physical activity researcher. The Forum is held in both Edmonton and Calgary each year. Archived videos are available.

Physical Activity Counselling Toolkit

The toolkit is a set of 10 handouts for use by practitioners when counselling clients who are sedentary, have difficulty maintaining regular physical activity, and/or have chronic diseases.

The handouts are available in English, French, Punjabi, Spanish, Chinese, and Korean. In addition, a set was created for Northern populations.

Active Workplace Audit Toolkit

Alberta Health Services and the Centre for Active Living worked in partnership with support from health, wellness, and workplace professionals to develop this evidence-informed toolkit.

The key purpose of this toolkit is to provide an audit tool for workplace champions, human resource professionals, and health and wellness promoters to identify how to support office-based employees to move more and sit less.
