Sport Policies & Plans

Active Alberta

Provincially, sport is found within Active Alberta, a government policy to achieve recreation, active living and sport outcomes, through a coordinated system, involving stakeholders, non-profit organizations, other levels of government, the private sector and individuals. Additionally, Spirit of Alberta, the Alberta Cultural Policy, defines culture in a broad sense, to include not only the arts, but also heritage, sport and recreation, and the natural environment.


Alberta Sport Plan 2014 - 2024


Going the Distance: The Alberta Sport Plan 2014 - 2024 was released after an extensive consultation with Albertans and stakeholders from across the Sport spectrum. This consultation included an online survey which was open to all Albertans to complete, a Sport Forum held in Red Deer, a series of regional conversations, and public consultation on a draft plan.



A draft Sport Action Plan coordinated by Alberta Sport Connection in consultation with sport stakeholders throughout the province has been developed and forwarded to the Government of Alberta for review and consideration.


Canadian Sport Policy 2012


The renewed Canadian Sport Policy (CSP) 2012 was endorsed by the Federal, Provincial and Territorial Ministers responsible for sport, physical activity and recreation on June 27, 2012. The CSP 2012 sets the direction for all governments, institutions and organizations that are committed to realizing the positive impacts of sport on individuals, communities and society. The policy has been designed to be implemented by complementary action plans developed by governments individually and collectively, and by non-government organizations (NGOs) in the sport and related sectors. It is available in both a complete format and a two page user friendly summary.
