The Sport, Recreation and Community Programs branch is committed to increasing Ontarians’ sport and physical activity participation levels and developing high performance athletes whose achievements inspire people across Ontario and Canada.
The Branch is responsible for creating a culture which values sport, recreation and physical activity in order to build healthier and more vibrant communities. Building this culture depends on strong partnerships with other levels of government, national and provincial sport and recreation organizations and other Ministry partners.
The Branch leads Ontario’s interests in 'Amateur Sport’ by ensuring recognized sports are conducted in a fair and safe way; encouraging sport participation among all Ontarians; supporting high performance athletes; ensuring the sport legacy from the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games and advocating Ontario priorities at the federal level.
The Branch leads Ontario’s interests in 'Recreation’ by providing funding for key partners to deliver projects that increase physical activity and provide after school programs among children and youth; enhance recreation infrastructure at the local level; provide coordination for provincial interests in trails, parkland, open space and water- based recreation resources.
The Branch also supports Community programs that deliver targeted health promotion programs with a focus on sport and recreation and engage Aboriginal communities to increase physical activity.
