The Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association Inc. (SPRA) is seeking to engage the services of a Consultant or Firm to conduct research that clearly identifies the needs of Aboriginal communities in supporting their development and operation of recreational programs and services.

SPRA strives for excellence in the provision of our training programs and services.  The SPRA - Aboriginal Support portfolio has:

  • Created programs that have resources to educate Aboriginal communities in grant writing, First Nation Recreation Board Development and holistic cultural awareness
  • Offered grants made available to support these recreation training and educational opportunities 
  • Provided financial support to provincial agencies that coordinate recreation for Aboriginal people   
  • Recognized programs, specifically offered through the SPRA Youth Engagement portfolio, as supporting youth leadership development through recreation for Aboriginal people 

SPRA met with the SPRA Aboriginal Advisory Committee to gain feedback on the expansion of its existing programs and services. The necessity to create services that address the needs of the community are of great concern. The issues faced by Aboriginal peoples are real and needs attention on the underlying concerns. These issues lead to unhealthy lifestyles, criminal behavior, self-destruction or other negative outcomes. The issues can define an individual and community, but can be changed though targeted recreation programs.

In response, SPRA is seeking to engage the services of a Consultant or Firm to conduct research and clearly identify the needs of Aboriginal communities in supporting their development and operation of recreational programs and services.  The objective of the project, recognized as the Aboriginal Engagement Study, will include findings and recommendations for SPRA consideration in providing services that improve the health of individuals living in Aboriginal communities through safe holistic recreation activity and education.
