Event Details:

The theme of JRPM 2024 is Community Thrives Here. This theme is meant to communicate that recreation and parks bring communities together in. Visting parks and participating in recreational pursuits help Ontarians enhance their quality of life through connecting them with community and encouraging active lifestyles.

Throughout June, each week will focus on a specific sub-theme. The visuals for the week reflect the individual theme. This week the theme is:

June 10-16: Trailblazers

Trailblazers week will focus on leaders and change makers within the parks and recreation sector.
