A Provincial Recreation Policy in Nova Scotia and The National Recreation Framework

Author/Presenter: 
Rick Gilbert

Speakers: Rick Gilbert, Max Chauvin

Nova Scotia has been committed to the development of a Provincial Recreation Policy for several years. A task team is working towards that end. This presentation explores some of the themes that are emerging from the National Recreation Agenda process that may have an effect on the content of the Provincial Recreation Policy. Foundational considerations like the definition of recreation, the connection of leisure and recreation, the notion of recreation as an essential service, and the connection between recreation and the economic development and environmental sustainability will all be key for consideration.
