It's simple, recreation is essential to life. The Recreation for Life Foundation, as a provincial Charitable organization envisages:“A province and communities within, that embrace and pro-actively use recreation and parks as essential for enhancing individual well-being, community vitality,economic sustainability, and natural resource protection and conservation. "The argument is both simple and persuasive; when people are active - physically active, as volunteers, as people of faith, in the arts - they are healthier in body, mind and spirit. And healthy people are integral to healthier and viable communities. " (Public Policy Report: Industry in Canada).
