A Framework for Wellbeing

Recreation and parks can address negative trends in health and reduce barriers to access and inclusion for people who
face constraints to participation. Saskatchewan people are becoming more active, and newcomers are among the most
active in the province. However, nearly 1/4 of people say they cannot afford to participate and discrimination continues to be
an issue. Addressing these challenges requires commitment and action towards enhancing opportunities for active living,
improving access to recreation and parks, promoting inclusion, and developing supportive environments for people of all ages, abilities, genders and backgrounds.

The Framework for Recreation in Canada 2015: Pathways to Wellbeing provides a foundation for reflection, discussion and the development of action for the changes we need in Saskatchewan.  

Research Summary

SPRA contracted Insightrix Research to conduct an online survey in February 2018 to learn how recreation and parks impact the people of Saskatchewan. Insightrix contacted a non-probability proportion stratified sample of 805 respondents over the age of 18 from across the province, with a response rate of 26%.

This four-page Research Summary highlights the results of the online survey.
