Prototypes Highlight New Possibilities

One of reSPORT's main goals is to encourage experiments in making sport more accessible. Around Nova Scotia, some communities are already coming up with creative ways to address barriers in sport.

In the Annapolis Valley, municipalities have partnered with schools to offer free after-school rec programs that run a few days a week for eight weeks at a time.

reSPORT: Finding Creative Ways to Broaden the Playing Field

That’s the philosophy behind reSPORT, a collaborative effort across Nova Scotia’s sport and recreation sector to find creative ways to make sure all Nova Scotians have equitable access to sport. READ MORE
