New Resource--2013 Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth, Active Healthy Kids Canada

This year's Report Card focuses on the decline in active transportation and the implications of this issue on overall physical activity levels of children and youth. This is particularly timely for those involved in children's mobility issues, including safe routes to school programming.
