A Report on the Fitness and Sports Promotion and Delivery System of Canada. Report No. 5.
Bozzo, Robert; Brounstein, Paul J.
An assessment of the sports and fitness promotion delivery mechanism in Canada is presented. Where appropriate, some comparisons between the United States and Canadian systems are made. The introduction reviews the research methods used. The second section traces the federal government's concern with fitness and sports through the stages of impetus, general commitment, organizational structuring, implementation, and transmission. Fitness and sports are discussed as two separate units. In the third section, fitness and sports at the provincial level (in Ontario and Alberta) are considered. The issues examined include: (1) the manner in which national policies and program initiatives are transmitted to be implemented at the provincial level; (2) the extent to which provinces have formulated their own policies and implementation strategies; and (3) the orientation and content of these provincial efforts. This section of the report also states, for each province, the initial distinction between fitness and sports as the focus of the study. A summary of observations at both the national and provincial level is presented. (JD)
