Recreation Nova Scotia (RNS), Communities, Culture and Heritage (CCH) and the Mi’kmaw Physically Active Leaders (MPALs) worked together to host regional gatherings of people who support recreation in their community. The purpose of the regional gathering was to connect with others who care about recreation, see the bigger picture of Mi’kmaw recreation successes and challenges together, share and present information to recreation staff and leaders as well as collect valuable data from the regions to assess their needs and find synergies and mutual support to create momentum for change. New Leaf designed and facilitated nine regional gatherings/sessions (3 in the Mi’kmaq communities). Winter-Summer 2019
