Where are we now?
Through community engagement, community members identified that additional recreation opportunities are needed in the community. Members are involved with seasonal recreation and sport activities including hockey, volleyball, golf, and slo-pitch baseball.
Having a large youth on-reserve population presents challenges when pursuing team-based sports. Mihkoskiwakak Nehiyawak requires funding, staff support, and volunteer organizers to provide recreation opportunities at the community level. There is currently no program manager for recreational development.
