ReImagine RREC – Renew, Retool, Engage and Contribute – is a national COVID-19 recovery initiative for parks, recreation and community sport leaders supported in part by the Government of Canada and delivered by the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA). It is intended to help leaders working in parks, recreation and community sport to improve planning, operations and delivery of programs and services in a pandemic and post-pandemic environment, as well as to contribute to community recovery more broadly.
CPRA is hosting five interactive workshops for leaders in the parks, recreation and community sport sectors. The first workshop will focus on the Safe Return to Recreation, Physical Activity and Community Sport.
Date: Tuesday, October 19, 2021
Time: 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET
- Facility design for safety and resilience (inclusive congregate events)
- Staff safety and support
- Keeping clients safe: Managing consumer expectations and behaviour
- John Frittenburg, President, The JF Group, Inc., and Project Lead, ReImagine RREC

Format: The workshop will consist of both lecture-style information-sharing and regional breakout sessions where leaders can share their experiences and identify specific questions and topics they have to help them move toward a safe return to programs and services.
Workshops will be delivered in English with simultaneous translation and a breakout room facilitated in French.
