Recreation and Sport
Recreation and Sport - Federal and Provincial Cooperation
Parks, Culture and Sport (PCS) and the federal government work together on recreation initiatives. The Government of Canada contribues financially through Sport Canada, a branch of the Department of Canadian Heritage.
The funding provides opportunities for persons from under-represented groups and/or marginalized populations to actively participate in sport as athletes, coaches, officials and volunteer leaders. It further supports projects that strengthen physical literacy and assists children and youth in learning fundamental movement skills and acquiring general sport skills that are the cornerstone of all athletic development.
Sask Sport manages the programs, which include the Aboriginal Coaches and Officials Program, Aboriginal Sport Development, Fundamentals and Learn to Train Skills Development and Dream Brokers.
Canadian Sport Policy
PCS participated in the development of a Canadian Sport Policy. The policy represents the shared vision and goals of 14 government jurisdictions for sport from 2002-12 and is developing goals to enhance participation, excellence, capacity and interaction in sport activities.
