Shared Strategy for Advancing Recreation 
in Nova Scotia

Recreation Nova Scotia and the Department of Communities, Culture, & Heritage have come together to create a Shared Strategy for Advancing Recreation in Nova Scotia! The Shared Strategy defines Recreation as, "The experience that results from freely-chosen participation in physical, social, intellectual, creative and spiritual pursuits that enhance individual and community wellbeing." Here at Canning Recreation, we are going to work hard to follow the goals within the Shared Strategy in an effort to promote the overall vision for Recreation in Canada, as outlined in the national framework: 

"A Canada in which everyone is engaged in meaningful, accessible recreation experiences that foster: 

  • Individual Well-being: Individuals with optimal mental and physical wellbeing, who are engaged and contributing members of their families and communities.
  • Community Well-being: Communities that are healthy, inclusive, welcoming, resilient and sustainable.
  • Well-being of Places & Spaces: Natural and built environments that are appreciated, nurtured, and sustained"
