The Canadian Physical Guidelines for Older Adults (65 and older) encourage older adults to participate in a variety of physical activities that are enjoyable and safe.

Older adults can meet these guidelines through planned exercise sessions, transportation, recreation, sports or occupational demands in the context of family, work, volunteer and community activities. This should be achieved above and beyond the incidental physical activities accumulated in the course of daily living.

Following these guidelines can reduce the risk of chronic disease and premature death, maintain functional independence and mobility, as well as improve fitness, body composition, bone health, cognitive function and indicators of mental health. The potential benefits far exceed the potential risks associated with physical activity.
