Residents Invited to Provide Input to Improve Recreation and Leisure Program Accessibility
Sport and recreation promote active and healthy lifestyles and contribute to a positive quality of life for everyone in our city. That’s why the City of Regina is seeking public input to make our recreation and leisure activities more accessible to people with disabilities.
Today, the City of Regina launched the Adapted Recreation Survey, which will be open from November 19 to December 3. The survey is open to everyone, and is especially targeted to people with disabilities, family and support networks for people with disabilities, and the recreation and leisure sector.
This survey is part of a broader consultation being facilitated by consultants Listen to Dis’ Community Arts Organization, a disability-led, disability-arts organization with a strong history of cultural and recreational programming, disability audits, and consultation work around inclusion and access.
The information collected will help to shape our Adapted Recreation Plan and influence next steps in improving accessibility for our recreation and leisure programs. Survey results will be included in a report to City Council in early 2022.
Adapted recreation refers to activities or facilities that have been specifically designed or changed to be more accessible to people with disabilities.
The City thanks the Adapted Recreation Sector Reference Group for their support in soliciting valuable input from their members. The group consists of community-based organizations that are engaged in disability and recreation locally.
