Canadian Index of Wellbeing 2016 - How Are Canadians Really Doing?
Canadians are interested in active lifestyles that include our natural and cultural heritage but spend less time and money on recreation and culture than ever. The Canadian Index of Wellbeing is a 21-year project aimed at providing a measure of our society’s well-being that is more effective than the traditional Gross Domestic Product. It includes 8 indices (or domains): education, healthy populations, community vitality, democratic engagement, living standards, time use, environment and leisure and culture.
CPRA and CS4L Launch “Building Enhanced Collaboration Between Recreation and Sport”
The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) and Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) are pleased to announce the release of a document that advances the discussion on recreation and sport.
Building Enhanced Collaboration Between Recreation and Sport reflects the needs, interests and breadth of the municipal recreation sector. It outlines the broad roles of municipal recreation in supporting sport. It examines the key shifts in sport policy, the nature of the sport and recreation partnership, common challenges/opportunities within this partnership and the key areas in which collaborative approaches can take place.
This document continues to build on past discussions, and identifies specific roles that a national, provincial, and or municipal recreation organization can do in order to enhance meaningful sport opportunities for the citizens in Canada.
The paper was a paper written by Don Hunter in collaboration with the CPRA Task Force.
Building Enhanced Collaboration Between Recreation and Sport is available for download at www.cpra.ca or www.canadiansportforlife.ca.
