Since the early 1970s, the Nova Scotian government has mandated itself, through various departments, to create, maintain and develop recreation opportunities across the province. Currently, the Department of Health Promotion and Protection oversees this activity.
Nova Scotia was the first province in Canada to start such a program, says Brenda Robertson, president of Recreation Nova Scotia.
Created in 1998, when three separate not-for-profit organizations merged, Recreation Nova Scotia is made up of a network of volunteers and professionals who deliver recreation benefits in this province.
Recreation Nova Scotia advocates on behalf of all Nova Scotians for high quality recreation and leisure opportunities.
Nova Scotia is a place of tradition. It's the Nova Scotian way to give people a chance to get active, to play, to enjoy a good life. The personal, social, economic, and environmental benefits of recreation are the essence of a healthy community.
