Resources & Advocacy

A Framework for Recreation in Canada 2015  – Pathways to Wellbeing provides a new vision for recreation and identifies common ways of thinking about the role of recreation in Canadian life, based on clear goals and underlying values and principles. The Framework has been endorsed by the Government of Canada, Provincial and Territorial Ministers, the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association, Provincial and Territorial Parks and Recreation Associations  and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.


To support the sustainable, long-term implementation of the Framework in Saskatchewan, our collaborative Engagement Team is developing a Framework for Recreation in Canada Provincial Engagement Strategy

This Engagement Strategy will assist SPRA members, as well as communities, decision makers, and municipal and provincial governments in using the Framework to:

  • Foster active living through physical recreation
  • Increase inclusion and access to recreation for populations that face constraint to participation
  • Help people connect to nature through recreation
  • Ensure the provision of supportive physical and social environments that encourage participation in recreation and building strong, caring communities
  • Ensure the continued growth and sustainability of the recreation field.

We will make an announcement on our website and in Parks & Recreation Connection, once the Engagement Strategy is available for use.
