Through the Canada-Manitoba Sport Development Partnership the two levels of government seek to:
1) Increase the level and range of participation in sport within Manitoba’s remote, isolated and inner urban communities, and especially among Manitoba’s Aboriginal and new immigrant populations.
2) Mobilize the energies and resources of Manitoba’s sport, fitness and recreation sectors to address obstacles to access and participation in sport by remote and inner urban communities, and particularly by Manitoba’s Aboriginal and new immigrant populations.
3) Generate continued, sustainable growth in sport participation through enhanced leadership at the local level.
4) Engage other government departments, local governments, community organizations and the private sector to support the efforts of the sport and recreation sectors to achieve Goals 1-3.
