The Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association Inc. (SPRA) is seeking to engage the services of a Consultant to conduct a Cultural Diversity Research Assessment within Saskatchewan, which clearly identifies the needs of members in their coordination and delivery of recreation programs and services in Saskatchewan that support cultural diversity and inclusion.

Introduction

SPRA is the recognized leader for a parks and recreation network that builds healthy active communities in Saskatchewan. We provide leadership and support to enhance the quality of the parks and recreation network. Our roles include training, education, advocacy, funding, information management, research and networking. SPRA is a not-for-profit organization and receives funding from the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation.

Background

SPRA strives for excellence in the provision of our training programs and services. SPRA’s work in the area of cultural diversity and inclusion has included, but not been limited to:

  • Recognized programs and resources to educate and assist members in grant writing, recreation board development and holistic cultural awareness
  • Offered grants that could be applicable to recreation training and education opportunities
  • Provided financial support to members who coordinate recreational opportunities
  • Adapted programs and services in support of cultural diversity and inclusion practices

SPRA recognizes it is necessary to create services that address the need for cultural diversity and inclusion in recreation programs and resources. The issues faced by people of many cultures are real and need attention to address the underlying concerns. These issues can lead to unhealthy lifestyle choices, misunderstandings, racism and other negative outcomes. The issues that define an individual and community can provide alternatives to diverse cultural inclusion through 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 members in support of their work to provide cultural, diverse and inclusive recreation programs and services. The objective of the project, recognized as the Cultural Diversity and Inclusion Study, will include findings and recommendations for SPRA’s consideration in providing support to members that offer services that improve the health of individuals living in Saskatchewan communities through safe recreation activity and education.
