We are recognized as the provincial umbrella organization representing parks and recreation in Saskatchewan and manage the Recreation Section of the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation.
SPRA allocates funding through the Recreation Section of the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation to eligible recreation organizations. There are currently 33 Provincial Recreation Organizations and seven Sport Culture and Recreation Districts on the Minister’s Eligibility List. This funding supports these Members with the delivery of quality recreation experiences throughout the province.
