Recreation and Sports: Living in Niagara Working Session 1:00 pm
Recreation and Sports: Living in Niagara Working Session @ Niagara Falls Public Library - LaMarsh Room
Jan 30 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Community partners are invited to join Niagara Connects for one or more of 12 working sessions in January, 2019 to review and modernize the Indicators and Measures for each Living in Niagara report Sector. The Living in Niagara – 2017 report was released 1 year ago. Now is the time to begin building the 2020 version! The report weaves data and knowledge together, to describe quality of life across the 12 Living in Niagara Sectors. The Sectors align with the Social Determinants of Health; their combined data provides a holistic picture of socio-economic progress in Niagara. Report construction methodology has evolved since its inception in 2008. Indicators and Measures in the 2020 report will be updated to reflect current practice and new knowledge within each Sector. Historically, many of Niagara’s sports and recreation clubs and organizations have developed separately. Strategic efforts for coordination, shared funding, access and joint hiring and training could strengthen delivery and further development. Read more about the Recreation and Sports Sector here.
