Recreation is Health Care
Play is fun, but we’re not just about play. Do we think of ourselves as part of the Health Care continuum? Do we think of recreation as Health Care? We must play a role in influencing and advocating for our role in changing the health of our population. As Provincial and Federal governments wrestle with allocating funding to “health care” instead of “sick care”, Recreation needs to be at the table.
