Hi eveyone!

The BCRPA Programmers Dialogue is happening on Tues May 1st 1:45-3 pm at the 2018 BCRPA Symposium. We hope to see you there! There will be a huge amount of expertise in the room and we hope to facilitate an exchange of that knowledge among programmers. We will provide opportunities for participants to learn from other programmers about their program experiences as well as establish relationships outside of their organizations who they can contact with programming questions. Looking forward to seeing you there.

In support of developing a strategy for an active community,the Regional District of Nanaimo is seeking “best case” practices from operators of community recreation facilities. Recreation Excellence has been contracted to conduct several consultation processes that will serve to inform the RDN of opportunities to improve RDN and community partners philosophy, policy, practice, and fees.

Hi All,

Is there any research showing program pricing comparisons across the Lower Mainland?

I think there is one municipality that tends to do this research, but i can't find it anywhere.



I am currently working on a user agreement between the regional district and school district. We are requesting access (on weekdays and weekends) to the school gym for afterschool programs and other community recreation programs. I am wondering two things

  1. If you have an agreement do you have a shared use, licensing agreement or other?
  2. What are the fees outlined in your agreement?

Thank you for any insight!

Hi All,

I'm reviewing options for providing food to public at Prince Rupert's recreation complex. Currently, the only food we provide is via three vending contracts. There is pressure from the community to explore healthier options as well as potentially providing better food security to the vulnerable populations that use our facility.

I'm looking for a information on what other facilities have to offer:

Vending machines?
Concession stands? Are they run by staff or contracted out?
Other options?

Description: A Global Movement To Inspire Love Of Nature. Our community is growing the important work being undertaken to connect people with nature exponentially. Rather than providing a “one size fits all” solution, we aim to foster enabling environments to reduce barriers and connect people with nature in different regions, contexts and realities.
In 2015, the Canadian Parks Council (CPC) formed a citizen working group to develop an action guide to connect Canadians with Nature. One year later, The Nature Playbook was launched to great acclaim. The #NatureForAll Playbook has been developed in partnership with the CPC, with input from many other #NatureForAll partners. The #NatureForAll Playbook offers suggestions and possibilities, but also emphasizes the importance of knowing yourself or your organization, and connecting on your own terms—inspiring the love and support for Nature that will lead to increased action for its conservation now and into the future.

Here in Fort St. John we have finally reach the one year mark on our quarterly Recreation Guide. Since inception we have been providing this guide online only - with the exception of a few printed copies at the front desk of our a few buildings. We are toying with the idea of printing a "limited" quantity where people could come and pick up a guide if they needed it.

Are there any communities who have gone from printing to online only to back to printing a quantity or does any one have some stats that would show increased registration when the guide is being printed?

Just wondering what the experience has been for other municipalities who are in the process of changing recreation registration software. I heard there was a big contract signed with PM....what has everyone's experience been so far?
