Graduates tell us...

"I loved sharing ideas with other people who work in recreation across the north. Learning with other Northerners was SO worth it! Anybody doing recreation in the North should register for a Rec North learning event as soon as they can."


"Seeing a report as a form of storytelling has changed my perspective on report writing and made it more interesting and engaging for me to prepare and will probably make the report more interesting to view."


"I will use the information I learned from our Community Profile to help implement creative programming that actually 'fits' and impacts target groups."


"I liked the topics that we discussed as they are important in our community. We need more leaders to strengthen sport and recreation within our community."


"I really enjoying having the conference calls where everyone has an opinion and no one has a wrong answer."


"The strength of this learning event was how it acknowledged Indigenous cultures and how they can be learned and connected through sports and recreation."
