Active Aging Canada strives to promote a society where all adult and older adult Canadians are leading active lifestyles that contribute to their overall well-being. Statistics Canada reported in 2013 that only 1 in 5 adult,and older adult Canadians,achieve the recommended 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity per week,based on the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines.These inactive Canadians aree unable to realize the health benefits of active living. Active Aging Canada,in partnership with its members,encourages Canadian adults and older adults to maintain and enhance their well-being and independence through a lifestyle that embraces physical activity and and active living philosophy with the end goal of healthy active aging.
