Leisure and Recreation in Canadian Society

An Introduction

Author/Illustrator/Editor: George Karlis (CA)

Leisure and Recreation in Canadian Society examines the many issues surrounding the provision of leisure and recreation in Canada. It provides an historical overview, describes the current state of affairs, and examines possible future developments in this area. Special attention is given to the unique features of Canadian society, including the major demographic and populations shifts in recent years that have had an affect on the delivery of leisure and recreation services. A major theme is the distinctiveness derived from Canada’s commitment to multiculturalism and ethnic diversity. A separate chapter is also devoted to Aboriginal Peoples whose needs in this area (and many other areas) are often overlooked.
