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.

Alberta Survey on Physical Activity

Physical activity levels of Albertans have been monitored every other year by the Alberta Centre for Active Living since 1993. The Alberta Survey on Physical Activity assesses:

  • the physical activity participation,
  • walking habits, and
  • other factors related to physical activity participation.

Our most current survey is the 2017 Alberta Survey on Physical Activity (56 pages, PDF). For the first time, the 2017 Alberta Survey on Physical Activity reported on ownership and use of a consumer-based physical activity tracker by Albertans.

Watch CTV Calgary's interesting story about their own employees' use of trackers.
