dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to examine associations between work hours, social relationships, and domain-specific physical activity among the Canadian workforce. This study utilized cross-sectional data of about 24,132 participants aged 18 to 74 from the 2018 Canadian Community Health Survey. Descriptive statistics and negative binomial regression controlling for age, sex, income, education, and occupation were used for the data analysis. Higher work hours were associated with less active transportation, more recreational physical activity, and less work and household physical activity. Social relationships assessed with social provisions scale were associated with less active transportation, less recreational physical activity, and less work, and household physical activity. The findings of this study suggest that social relationships are associated with lower rates of physical activity in all domains whereas the effect of work hours varies by domain. en_US
