The organization of recreation professionals began in 1967 with the Manitoba Municipal Recreation Directors Association which then disbanded in 1973 to create a new association with broader objectives, open to all Manitobans concerned with leisure opportunities in our province.
Board of Directors
The Recreation Manitoba is governed by a Board of Directors. It is volunteer based organization, comprised of individuals who work in recreation and related fields.
Recreation Manitoba is a provincial organization working alongside and for recreation professionals in Manitoba. Recreation Manitoba grew from the need to provide an organization that was service-oriented and open to professionals, practitioners and volunteers in the recreation, sport, parks and leisure industries in Manitoba.
Strategic Plan 2017-2020
Recreation Manitoba's Strategic Plan for 2017 – 2020 included a series of facilitated work sessions with the board, staff and select group of recreation leaders.
We are the provincial member organization of the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA). We acknowledge community leaders from our past for recognizing recreation and parks as an integral part of the social fabric of a great province.
Manitobans can celebrate in the history of recreation and parks and be proud of the 100 plus years we have contributed to the quality of life for all Manitobans. We are rich in parks, facilities, services, programs, volunteers and dedicated, committed professionals.
Recreation Manitoba is a forum for recreation practitioners and volunteers across Manitoba to share ideas and work in partnership toward building a better Manitoba.
