The first-ever Canadian Sport Policy was established in 2002. It described a vision and goals for sport through to the year 2012.
Over the past two years Canadians, including over 400 individual Manitobans and sport partner organizations, have been actively engaged in sharing their views on what sport should look like in Canada as part of consultations for the renewal of the
Canadian Sport Policy post-2012. See the attached Manitoba Update as well as the Focus Groups Summary (87 page) Full Report. Manitoba Focus Groups.pdf
The renewed Canadian Sport Policy seeks to capture and embrace the value and importance of sport and advance the public policy outcomes inspired by sport in Canada. The draft of the Canadian Sport Policy 2.0 is now available for your review.
Sport Manitoba’s Partner Organizations as well as individuals are invited to submit their comments on the draft policy before March 7, 2012.
In particular we would like to hear:
- What are the strengths of the draft CSP 2.0?
- What are its weaknesses?
- How could these weaknesses be addressed?
- Do you have any additional comments and feedback?
To provide your feedback…please go to: www.sirc.ca/csprenewal
Your feedback will be taken into consideration in the development of a final draft document that will be presented in June 2012 to federal, provincial and territorial ministers responsible for sport, physical activity and recreation for their endorsement.
