Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines

The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) has developed a set of 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for the early years (0 – 4), children and youth (5-17), adults (18-64) and for older adults (65+). These guidelines show us what a healthy 24-hour period looks like – including physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep recommendations. You can find more detailed information on our Physical Activity pages for:

Public Health can provide support and resources to your patients with their questions about physical activity or local healthy eating programs and services. Questions will be answered by registered dietitians and physical activity professionals. Email healthycommunities@hpeph.ca or call 613-966-5500 and follow the prompts to reach reception.

COVID-19 VACCINES IN HPEPH

Appointments for individuals 5+ can be booked through the provincial vaccine booking site, or by calling 1-833-943-3900 from 8 am to 8 pm, 7 days a week.  

Due to limited supply, HPEPH will initially be prioritizing available bivalent vaccine for residents and workers at identified highest-risk facilities.  Some HPEPH vaccination clinics MAY offer the bivalent vaccine, as availability allows. Vaccine clinics in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties will continue to offer monovalent vaccines (the same mRNA vaccines given as the primary series) for all eligible individuals until a steady supply of the bivalent vaccine is available.

Visit the HPEPH vaccine booking web page for details.
