Recreation without Barriers! Ensuring Everbody Gets to Play™
Recreation makes a difference!
Everybody gets to playTM helps ensure that all residents of Saskatchewan have the opportunity to participate in and reap the many benefits of recreation. As part of a national initiative led by the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CRPA), Everybody gets to playTM aims to make recreation more accesible to low-income children and their families.
Improving quality of life is a shared responsibility. There are a variety of tools and resources available through SPRA to assist communities in removing the barriers to participation in recreation.
Community Mobilization Toolkit The Toolkit is a resource that will help mobilize your community, building a shared vision among partners that can make a difference. The Toolkit includes tools, sample processes and policies, success stories and other resources aimed at improving recreation opportunities.
*First Nations, Inuit and Metis Supplement is also available.
Host a Workshop - SPRA offers one-day Community Mobilization Workshops which focus on raising awareness of the issue of poverty and the consequences of failing to provide accessible recreation opportunities. Participants will also be led through the process of identifying barriers, developing solutions, setting goals and planning strategies through tools and exercises for their own communities.
Share Your Success - Tell us how your organization or community enhanced the quality of life of children and youth living in poverty by removing the barriers to participation in recreation. Share your best practices, programs and strategies that have made a difference in your community.
