This Recreation policy re-affirms the government of Manitoba’s commitment to recreation and identifies priorities as we continue to support and promote recreation in our province. It reflects the input of stakeholders and outlines the principles and directions needed to ensure provincial investments support quality recreation programs and services that align with local and provincial priorities to improve the health and well-being of communities and individuals.

The policy has been informed by extensive province-wide consultations with varied stakeholders. It has also drawn from knowledge and experience gained through Manitoba’s involvement in the development of the National Framework for Recreation in Canada (2015). Moving forward Manitobans will benefit from opportunities to collaborate on shared priorities identified throughout the country.

This policy will provide a framework and direction for provincial government and valued community partners as together we build a stronger recreation delivery system that is responsive to the needs of Manitobans and will serve us all in the years to come.
