June is Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM) is about recognizing the importance of recreation and parks for physical, social, environmental, and health benefits.

The NWT Recreation and Parks Association is once again offering the Get Active grant program which offers $400 to $500 grants to organize and deliver a community and/or elder-oriented physically active events that are free to the public in the month of June.

Host a Free Event for JRPM
