Ottawa – The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) applauds the federal government’s leadership in ensuring Canadians have access to the benefits of parks and recreation. Multiple commitments outlined in the federal budget today demonstrate a government that values parks and recreation and the health and wellness it provides Canadians.
The federal government’s investments align with the five goals of the Framework for Recreation – a document that is a call to action in the pursuit of common priorities in the sector. The five goals include: Active Living; Inclusion and Access: Connecting People and Nature; Supportive Environments; and Recreation Capacity. Today’s federal budget speaks to each of these goals.
