Source: CICH graphic created using data adapted from National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth 2002/2003, Statistics Canada – custom runs and Survey of Young Canadians 2010/2011, Statistics Canada – custom runs.
Between 2002/03 and 2010/11, proportionately more young children participated in organized sports with a coach or instructor, and in dance, gymnastics or martial arts.
That was also the case for participation in music, art or other non-sport activity.
Participation in clubs, groups or community programs and unorganized sports or physical activity remained relatively stable.
