Sport, Recreation and Community Programs - vote 3803

The Ministry's sport, recreation and community programs are working to improve Ontarians' sport and physical activity experiences and support the development of high performance athletes whose achievements inspire people across Ontario and Canada.

The Ministry’s support for ‘Amateur sport’ is focused on participation, development and excellence for athletes of all ages and abilities.

The Ministry leads Ontario's interests in 'Recreation' by providing funding for key partners to deliver projects that improve physical activity including targeted supports to engage Indigenous communities and provide after school programs among children and youth; provide coordination for provincial interests in trails, parkland, open space and water based recreation resources.

The Ministry also has oversight and responsibility for amateur and professional combative sport and works to make Ontario a leader in the area of sport safety.

Though the Ontario Honours and Awards Secretariat, the Ministry also recognizes the outstanding contributions and achievements of the people of Ontario.
