This study aims to evaluate the effects of an online exercise and peer support intervention for people living with COPD. In the framework of a randomized control trial, 24 adults with COPD will be recruited to participate in the study and will be randomly assigned to either the control or intervention group. The control group will participate in an 8-week virtual program based on the exercise component of a standard home-based pulmonary rehabilitation program (one online consultation and 7 phone calls with a kinesiologist). The intervention group will participate in a twice a week online intervention that includes an exercise component based on individuals' activities of daily living and a peer support component where individuals will be taught and encouraged to discuss behaviour change techniques that have been shown to help support increased participation in physical activity and/or exercise. The goal of this study is to determine the efficacy of the novel online exercise intervention and whether the benefits are above other intervention options.
