Everybody Gets To Play

Everybody gets to play is a Canada-wide initiative led by the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) to make recreation more accessible for low-income children and their families.

Community Mobilization ToolKit

The Community Mobilization Tool Kit (Jeux sans frontieres) was developed as a part of the CRPA's national initiative to enhance the lives of Canadian children in low-income families through increased access to recreation. Created by recreation practitioners and partner across the country, it gives you - recreation practitioners and volunteers - the tools you need to mobilize communities and reduce barriers to recreation for low-income families and their children.

It can be a useful resource for anyone who believes that children should have the opportunity to develop their physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and creative potential.

The First Nations, Inuit and Métis Supplement

The First Nations Inuit and Métis Supplement (Première Nations, Inuits et Métis Supplément) to the ToolKit was developed to provide specific information about First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples because of the unique history and circumstances faced by Aboriginal peoples in Canada. The Tool Kit and this Supplement provide you with tools and information needed to mobilize your community to reduce barriers to recreation participation for First Nations, Inuit and Métis families.

Northern Supplement

The Northern Supplement compliments CPRA’s Everybody gets to play™ Community Mobilization Tool Kit by bringing Northern facts, statistics, successes, resources and connections to our communities. Use it to:

  • Learn about the barriers and challenges facing Northern communities as they try to increase access to recreation
  • Find out what factors can help increase recreation participation
  • Get more information on accessing funding, writing proposals, evaluating programs, creating awareness of the issues, and getting your community involved in recreation
