January 15/13 12:13 pm - Ontario Providing More Opportunities for Sport and Recreation
Posted by Editoress on 01/15/13
The Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund is now accepting applications for 2013-2014. This fund will enable eligible local, regional, and provincial sport and recreation organizations to implement innovative programs and services that:
• Increase opportunities for participation in sport and recreation;
• Educate Ontarians about the important role physical activity plays in their health;
• Provide training in areas such as coaching, youth development, and volunteer development
Building a more active province can directly contribute to positive economic and social outcomes such as increased labour force productivity, improved student achievement and the social strength of individuals and communities.
Supporting healthy, strong communities is part of the McGuinty Government’s commitment to provide all Ontarians with access to local and provincial programs that help them live healthier, more active lives.
