Definition of Recreation
• Recreation includes all those activities in which an individual chooses to
participate in their leisure time, and is not confined solely to sports or
physical recreation programs, but includes artistic, creative, cultural, social
and intellectual activities, and … is a fundamental human need for
individuals of all ages and interests and for both sexes and is essential to
the psychological, social and physical wellbeing of each Canadian;
•
(Also,) …recreation is an essential social service in the same way that
health and education are considered as social services, and that
recreation’s purpose should be: (a) to assist individual and community
development, (b) to improve the quality of life and (c) to enhance social
functioning.
Proposed Organizational Vision
SPRA is the recognised leader in the wellbeing of
people and communities through recreation.
Sector Vision
We envision a Saskatchewan in which all citizens have
equitable access to recreation experiences that:
- Contribute to mental and physical health and wellbeing
- Result in well rounded, well adjusted contributing members of
their community
- Provide connection and attachment to their community(ies)
and environment
We envision a Saskatchewan in which our communities
are healthy, inclusive, welcoming, resilient and
sustainable, and our natural environments are
appreciated and sustained.
Proposed Mission
SPRA provides leadership, facilitation, programs
and services to enhance the impact of
recreation for the wellbeing of Saskatchewan.
