With the end of Walk to Tuk, the staff at the NWTRPA take a deep breath. We don’t rest for long, however, as there are a ton of other upcoming initiatives, programs, and events that we must prepare for. If you benefitted from Walk to Tuk, then we know you’ll benefit from some of our other programs as well. We’ve put together a list of three of them that we think might especially interest you:

  • Get Active – Have an idea for an active event? We want to help you make it happen. Get Active grants provide funds for organizations to put on physically active events in their community. You put in the elbow grease and we’ll help cover the costs.

    • When: June is Recreation and Parks Month Get Active grants are often available at the beginning of May for events during June. Grants are also available in September for events that take place during the fall and winter months.
  • Annual Conference – You may be saying “I don’t work in recreation, why would I be interested in attending a recreation conference?” Because over the past few years, the NWTRPA Annual Conference has become much more than a training and networking event for recreation staff. Over 300 people gathered to attend the Conference the last two years, including youth centre staff, health care workers, teachers, on the land leaders, and many others. The event has become a place to share ideas and meet interesting people from a variety of sectors.

    • When and Where: The 2019 Conference will take place in Hay River on October 8, 9, & 10.
  • Fitness Leadership Training – Maybe getting active during Walk to Tuk has made you realize that you have much more of an interest in fitness than you thought. Why not take part in one of the NWTRPA’s Fitness Leadership trainings?
