International Curriculum Guidelines for Preparing Physical Activity Instructors of Older Adults


Pages: 1 | 2 | 3

APPENDIX A:


CANADIAN GUIDELINES
Canadian Guidelines for Leaders of Physical Activity Programs for Older Adults in Long-Term Care, Home Care and the Community (2003) can be found on the Web site of the Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging at www.uwo.ca/actage. These guidelines were produced as a result of the release, in the International Year of Older Persons (1999), of the following:
Canada's Physical Activity Guide to Healthy Active Living (endorsed by more than 56 organizations)
Blueprint for Action for Active Living and Older Adults: Moving Through the Years (contributors: La Fondation en adaptation motrice [FAM], Active Living Coalition for Older Adults [ALCOA], Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging [CCAA], and Health Canada)
Recommendations from the Roundtable of Leaders in Physical Activity and Aging (1998)* and the ALCOA National Forum-Older Adults and Active Living (1999).* Both events were hosted by the Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging.
* Financially supported by Health Canada


Several delegates representing a cross-section of health-related perspectives were instrumental in contributing to the development of the Canadian Guidelines. These contributions were solicited on the basis of their expertise and not necessarily their affiliations.
