What is JRPM?
June is Recreation and Parks Month (JRPM) is an annual observance celebrated in Canada to
promote the importance of recreation and parks in enhancing the well-being and quality of life
for individuals and communities. It is a month-long campaign dedicated to raising awareness
about the benefits of participating in recreational activities, enjoying public parks, and engaging
in outdoor pursuits.
JRPM aims to highlight the vital role of recreation and parks in fostering physical and
mental health, community building, environmental conservation, and overall social well-being.
The campaign encourages people of all ages to get active, connect with nature, and take
advantage of the various recreational opportunities available in their communities.
What is the NWTRPA JRPM Photo Contest?
Once a week, for the month of June, the NWT Recreation and Parks Association JRPM photo
contest committee will be selecting two winners per week whose pictures demonstrate family,
friends or themselves participating in some form of recreation. The selected winning photos will
be shared on our social media page for all to see. Anyone within the NWT can participate!
