Ontario Providing More Opportunities for Sport and Recreation

English: Yasir Naqvi, MPP Ottawa Centre

Dear Friends,

Ontario is helping people of all ages and abilities get active, stay fit and live healthier.

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; and

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.

The Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund replaces the Healthy Communities Fund which previously funded integrated health promotion projects. Please note that the Statement of Interest deadline for provincial projects is February 6, 2013, and the application deadline for both provincial and local/regional projects is March 19, 2013. The application is attached for your use.

Supporting healthy, strong communities is part of our government’s commitment to provide all Ontarians with access to local and provincial programs that help them live healthier, more active lives.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of any assistance to you.
