NB PLAYS! is a New Brunswick-led initiative developed by Recreation New Brunswick and its partners. It supports leaders and strengthens capacity for recreation programming that fosters health and wellness in our province.
NB PLAYS! has established a framework for quality, holistic programming that promotes physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual wellness. The initiative is aligned with New Brunswick’s Wellness Movement, featuring positive mental health, physical activity, healthy eating, learning experiences, outdoor adventures and community connections as key elements of overall well-being.
HIGH FIVE® is Canada's quality standard for children's recreation and sport. Before HIGH FIVE®, no standard existed and there was a clear need for an innovative approach to help organizations enhance program quality and provide positive experiences for children, which would remain with them for a lifetime.
The Inclusive Recreation Activity Fund, formally the Provincial
Recreation Access Fund, exists to provide support and facilitate direct
participation for those with disabilities. It is our intention to reduce
or eliminate barriers that hinder participation. This re-imagined fund
can help cover the costs of registration fees, transportation costs, and
equipment needs of individuals who would not have been able to take
part in physical activities without this program. Introduced in 2015, a
portion of the overall fund ($2500) will be used as a one-time annual
grant. Municipalities or organizations can apply for this grant, and the
funds can be used towards inclusive recreation programming or inclusive
upgrading of a facility.
