Introduction to the Survey

In March 2018 the Government of Northwest Territories passed the new Western Canada Lotteries Act. The Act, which established the Physical Activity, Sport and Recreation Fund, came into force on April 1, 2019. It gives control of the Western Canada Lotteries Program to the Department of Municipal and Community Affairs (MACA).

MACA currently is working with Territorial and Regional Organizations and Territorial Sport Organizations to develop guidelines for funding sport, physical activity and recreation programs and services in the NWT. These guidelines are written in a draft Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation (SPAR) Framework. 

The objective of this survey is to assess the ideas and principles presented in this draft Framework and to hear your views about what should guide decisions about funding for sport, physical activity and recreation in the NWT. The Framework will be finalized following this public engagement.
