Overview: On February 13, 2015 in Prince George, British Columbia, a meeting of the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Ministers responsible for Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation took place. At this meeting, the Framework for Recreation in Canada 2015 was endorsed by Provincial and Territorial Ministers (excluding Quebec) and supported by the Government of Canada. The Framework for Recreation in Canada recognizes the important role that recreation plays in fostering the well-being of individuals and communities. The purpose of this session is to introduce TR practitioners in BC to the Framework and to provide opportunities for participants to talk together about the potential connections to TR practice. All participants are asked to review the Framework before the workshop, so we can have lots of time for conversation: please see the link below.

1. Name the five goals and priorities for action associated with the Framework for Recreation in Canada
