Although the Framework is primarily written for and by the recreation and parks practitioners, its implementation requires collaboration across a broad range of stakeholders. Key partners for recreation include departments and not-for-profit organizations at all levels, and the private sector. These include stakeholders in sport, physical activity, health, urban planning, Aboriginal affairs, infrastructure development, rural development, natural resources and conservation, arts and culture, social development, tourism, justice, heritage, child development and active aging.
Four particular areas of recreation providers are already using the Framework to advance recreation in Canada: municipalities, provincial and territorial governments, provincial and territorial parks and recreation associations, and post-secondary institutions.
Municipalities are utilizing the Framework to ensure their recreation programs, facilities, spaces, and community associations are aligning with the five goals.
Provincial and Territorial Governments
Provincial and territorial governments are utilizing the Framework to ensure their programs, grants and policies are using the Framework as a lens to align with the five goals.
Provincial and Territorial Parks and Recreation Associations
Provincial and Territorial Parks and Recreation Associations are utilizing the Framework to ensure their members are aligning with the five goals.
Post-Secondary Institutions are utilizing the Framework to ensure that the sector’s future leaders are aware of, and strive to align with the five goals.
