Winnipeg Community Sport Policy 

Representatives from sport's various partners and stakeholder organizations including Sport Manitoba, Winnipeg Community Sport Alliance, General Council of Winnipeg Community Centres, Manitoba Physical Education Supervisors Association, Winnipeg Regional Health Authority and the City of Winnipeg Community Services Department have been working together towards creating a new Winnipeg Community Sport Policy.

 

From October to December of 2010 these partners and stakeholders actively engaged their members, partner organizations and/or constituents in a facilitated consultation process using the Canadian Sport for Life model as well as the "principles" and "areas of emphasis" that were established in the Framework to Develop a Winnipeg Community Sport Policy document as the basis for the discussion. The consultation process provided the partners and stakeholders with key issues that need to be addressed in order to create a sport policy that fits Winnipeg.  The Progressing Toward a Winnipeg Community Sport Policy - Engaging the Community document was created summarizing the consultation sessions.

 

At present, the sport partners and stakeholders have completed a final draft of the sport policy as well as a final draft of the executive summary for the final draft document. There will be two open forums (information below) which will allow the public to voice their concerns and ask any questions they may have in regards to the draft policy.  Once the forums are complete and any changes are made, the final Winnipeg Community Sport Policy will be presented to the City of Winnipeg and requested to be adopted.  The partners and stakeholders will be requested to endorse the new policy.

Open Forums

Thursday, September 15, 2011 from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Fort Rouge Leisure Centre at 625 Osborne St South

or

Thursday, September 22, 2011 from 7 pm to 9 pm at the North Centennial Recreation and Leisure Facility at 90 Sinclair at Dufferin

 

 

The forth and final stage will consist of developing implementation plans and strategies to attach actions to the new Winnipeg Community Sport Policy. This will provide ongoing structure and process required to ensure that the future of sport in Winnipeg is progressive and dynamic and based on a shared vision.
