Time Use

Between work, chores, errands and appointments, there are many time pressures in our modern lives. Ideally, we should be able to find a healthy balance between these necessary tasks and our leisure time with family, friends and even by ourselves. This ensures we have time for healthy behaviours such as physical activity, cooking healthy meals, getting enough sleep and relaxation.

Commuting times


Long commutes can be stressful, and take time away from family and leisure activities. They are also costly in terms of both money and the environment. Commuting times in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph and Centre Wellington tend to be lower than the overall Ontario commuting times. Long commutes (>30 minutes one way) are also less common in these communities. [8]
