The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport (MTCS), through its Sport, Recreation and Community Programs Division, is focused on furthering the Ontario government’s social and economic interests by fostering lifelong participation and excellence in sport and recreation. The Community Aboriginal Recreation Activator (CARA) Program is sponsored through Grants Ontario targeted to remote/isolated First Nations to enhance the quality of life for community members through the provision of the community driven sport, recreation, and physical activity programs. Participating First Nations are provided with funding to hire an ‘Activator’ to create a community driven recreation plan, facilitate the delivery of programs and enhance the capacity of the community to meet its sport and recreation needs. The Activator is responsible for the planning of community based recreation programs based on the community’s needs and interests. It is the Community Activators goal to enhance volunteer capacity by actively initiating, advertising and recruiting volunteers to lead and support groups. The CARA Program has in the past developed partnerships with other community organizations thus creating successful recreational programming.
