Additional Background

Parks for All is the result of a collaboration involving people who care deeply about parks in Canada. It was initiated and supported through a partnership between the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) and the Canadian Parks Council (CPC).

Connecting Canadians with Nature: An Investment in the Well-Being of Our Citizens and A Framework for Recreation in Canada 2015 – Pathways to Wellbeing are the two documents that motivated this work. Parks for All strategically aligns with, and complements, the five goals of the Framework for Recreation in Canada 2015 – primarily in relation to Goal 3 “Connecting People and Nature”.
