We envision a Canada in which every citizen is engaged in meaningful, accessible recreation experiences that foster individual, community and environmental well-being. The Framework for Recreation in Canada is our pathway to that goal.

The Framework for Recreation in Canada is the guiding document for public recreation providers in Canada. We have an opportunity to work together in ways that will enable all Canadians to enjoy recreation and outdoor experiences in supportive physical and social environments.

CPRA and the Interprovincial Sports and Recreation Council (ISRC) co-chair a Framework Leadership Team. This team includes representatives from CPRA and ISRC as well as academics and associations representing sport, health, Indigenous peoples, people with disabilities and low-socioeconomic Canadians. The team provides national leadership on the implementation of the Framework.

We work with a variety of other national organizations to further the parks and recreation agenda in Canada and in the world.
