Government's Role in Sport and Recreation

From grassroots to competitive, sports and recreation provide many benefits to the citizens of our province and improve the quality of life in Saskatchewan. The Government of Saskatchewan partners with Sask Sport, SaskCulture and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association to ensure proceeds from Saskatchewan Lotteries support a wide range of sport, culture and recreation groups in communities throughout the province.

Federal and Provincial Co-operation in Sport and Recreation

The Government of Saskatchewan and the federal government work together on sport, physical activity and recreation initiatives. The Government of Canada contributes financially through Sport Canada, a branch of the Department of Canadian Heritage. Shared funding agreements between the federal government, the Government of Saskatchewan and Sask Sport provide opportunities for persons from under-represented groups to actively participate in sport as athletes, coaches, officials and volunteer leaders.
