SPORT AND RECREATION PROGRAM - VOTE 3803

The Sport and Recreation Program seeks to achieve higher physical activity rates and increased sport participation to improve the health of Ontarians and their quality of life through the ACTIVE2010 Strategy, a province-wide strategy. ACTIVE2010 links to the key priority Better Health and the key result to Reduce Illnesses from Smoking, Obesity and Environmental Pollution. Promotional and educational activities aim to increase the awareness of the benefits and opportunities of physical activity and sport, and reduce barriers to participation. Sport and Recreation is also coordinating the development of the Ontario Trails Strategy and the new Community Use of Schools Program. In addition, Sport and Recreation works with stakeholders and other ministries to ensure a more co-ordinated approach and increased interaction within the sector, providing support to provincial sport and the Ontario Games, and supporting community sport and recreation organizations.
