Building Community Through Recreation Networks

Building Community Through Recreation Networks provide an opportunity for a variety of local organizations and people connect about recreation needs, develop capacity,  and in some cases, develop new programming opportunities in their neighbourhoods. 

Neighbourhood events gather together several Recreation Program providers to share program details and explore opportunities to develop and deliver programs to meet the needs of a community. 

If your group or organization is involved in recreation programming, join a Recreation Network in your area! Together recreation can flourish in our communities.

Contact Building Community Through Recreation for more information or to be added to the invite list.
