Parks, Culture and Sport (PCS) collaborates with the federal government on a number of federal/provincial sport and recreation initiatives including:
Canada Sport Policy
Canadians see government playing a key role in the development of policy, legislation and strategies to create conducive environments and infrastructure for sport and recreation activities. Fully 93 per cent of all Canadian adults support continuation or increased investment of tax dollars by governments to support these activities.
PCS participated in the development of a Canadian Sport Policy. The policy represents the shared vision and goals of 14 government jurisdictions for sport from 2002-12 and is developing goals to enhance participation, excellence, capacity and interaction in sport activities.
Canada Sport Centre
This was the first full year of service delivery for the Canadian Sport Centre - Saskatchewan, a partnership between PCS, Sask Sport Inc., Sport Canada, Coaching Association of Canada, Sport Medicine and Science Council of Saskatchewan, and the Coaches Association of Saskatchewan. Athletes and coaches bring pride to our entire province when they excel at the national and international levels. The programs and services offered at the sport centre are dedicated to making the best of our high performance athletes and coaches as they prepare for Western, Canadian and Olympic games.
Canada Summer Games
PCS was instrumental in helping to procure Regina as host of the 2005 Canada Summer Games. A number of communities near Regina, including Saskatchewan Beach, Lumsden, Regina Beach and Moose Jaw, hosted portions of the games. Hosting the games highlights the celebration of our cultural diversity and recognizes the essential contribution sport makes to the social and economic well-being of the province and Saskatchewan communities.
The Canada Games are the product of strong partnerships between the Government of Canada, provincial/territorial governments, host municipalities and the Canada Games Council.
