CPRA hosted a webinar on the Framework for Recreation in Canada on February 8, 2018. 

Topics included Implementation of the Framework, new community audit tool, a national survey and sneak peek into the Forum. 

Community Audit Tool

The Community Audit Tool was created to allow local governments and organizations to assess their current situation with respect to implementing the goals and priorities of the Framework for Recreation in Canada, while recognizing local priorities and resources. This tool can be used in a half-day workshop, as a self-directed workbook or as part of a master planning exercise. You can download version 1 of the tool by filling out the form below.

As the tool is still under development we are asking for your assistance: In order to download the tool, please provide your name and email so that we can follow up with a short evaluation in order to improve the next version of the tool. Once you hit submit below you will be provided the link.

CPRA will not share this information for any purpose other than to send the evaluation in the next few months. Completing the evaluation is optional.
