Government of Saskatchewan to Co-Host National Recreation Forum

Released on January 25, 2018

The Government of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association (SPRA) are excited to announce the first ever Framework for Recreation in Canada Forum.

From May 8-10, in Regina, this national event will contribute to achieving the values and goals of the Framework for Recreation in Canada.  Gathering Strength: Framework for Recreation in Canada Forum will focus on creating dialog and building relationships across the country.

“Recreation is essential in the lives of all Canadians no matter one’s age or physical ability,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “Events like this help to answer the Framework’s call to address the challenges and showcase the benefits recreation has in our province and in our country.”

Recreation professionals, academics, educators, students and innovative leaders will come together for this three day forum.  The Forum will include networking to share successful strategies related to the five Framework goals of: Active Living, Inclusion and Access, Connecting People and Nature, Supportive Environments and Recreation Capacity.

“Communities across Saskatchewan have embraced the Framework and are actively working to achieve its goals,” SPRA President Coralie Bueckert said.  “This Forum represents the diverse array of initiatives that are underway and recreation’s contribution to quality of life in Canada.”

Registration for the forum opens today.  The early bird deadline is March 29, 2018 and registration closes on April 24, 2018.  Student rates are also available.  Learn more information or register at

Gathering Strength: Framework for Recreation in Canada Forum is endorsed by the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association, Provincial and Territorial Parks and Recreation Associations and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.
